Pennsylvania opens its third round of Natural Gas Vehicle grants tomorrow, Aug. 30.
The grants will provide an estimated $6 million to help pay for the incremental purchase
and conversion costs of heavy-duty natural gas fleet vehicles.
Since 2013, the state Department of Environmental Protection says it has awarded $14 million to 44 organizations and companies making the switch to compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), and bi-fuel vehicles weighing 14,000 pounds or more.
Those eligible to apply include non-profit organizations, local transportation organizations, state owned or state related universities, commonwealth or municipal authorities, for-profit companies and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
Grant applications are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 14, and will be awarded this winter.
Eligible applicants are encouraged to participate in a related webinar, scheduled for
Sept. 22, from 2 to 3 p.m.
To register for the webinar and view the updated guidance document and online grant application, visit www.dep.state.pa.us and click on the “Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program” button.
