Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection is now accepting project applications for the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant
Program, which finances the production and use of clean-burning fuels in the state.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently announced that state environmental secretary Kathleen McGinty, on behalf of governor Edward Rendell, awarded earlier this week more than $1 million in Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant
(AFIG) program grants, which leveraged more than $4.2 million in private funds to purchase hybrid electric vehicles, install a propane refueling station for vehicles and anti-idling equipment for heavy-duty trucks, support the development of a low-speed hydrogen fuel cell utility vehicle, and finance the demonstration of compressed natural gas and blended fuel in transit buses and vans.
Through the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grants
program, DEP provides grants to municipalities, businesses and organizations for the installation of EV charging stations, she said.
