Cummins Releases Updates on Impact of California Regulations

According to an RV Industry Association’s (RVIA) News & Insights report, Cummins announced its phased approach to release a portfolio of CARB SORE-compliant products in early 2024. 

The report noted that in fall of 2022, the California Air Resource Board (CARB) confirmed amendments to the Small Off-Road Engine (SORE) regulation, which applies to all spark ignition engines less than 25 horsepower. 

Engines powered by gasoline and liquid propane used in RV generators will be required to significantly lower emissions starting in January 2024. 

As stated in a letter sent to RV industry partners and customers, Cummins immediately began evaluating potential options to meet the new emissions standards outlined by CARB. At that time, the company transparently communicated the challenges involved and stated they would not have any spark-ignited products available for sale in California by January 1, 2024.

The report highlighted that the new CARB SORE regulation will impact various Cummins generator models, including Onan QG 2500i, Onan QG 2800i, Onan QG 3600, Onan QG 4000, Onan QG 5500 and Onan QG 7000, which range from 2.5kW to 7kW. 

Cummins has confirmed its commitment to meeting or exceeding government regulations related to the emissions of its products, as part of its duty to contribute to the sustainable future of the planet. 

The company has made significant investments over the past twelve months to maintain its position in the RV industry, including aligning a special group of cross-functional professionals fully dedicated to delivering power systems for the industry.
