PA DEP Continues the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced the continuation of Pennsylvania’s Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program, which provides $1,000 rebates to commonwealth residents for natural gas vehicles, as well as propane, hydrogen and fuel-cell vehicles. CNG original equipment, manufacturer retrofits, or certified conversions to CNG or propane are also eligible for the $1,000 rebate. DEP provides these rebates as incentives to assist Pennsylvanians with the incremental cost of purchasing an alternative fuel vehicle.
To qualify, the vehicle must be registered in Pennsylvania, operated primarily in-state, and be purchased no more than six months before the rebate application is submitted. The rebates are funded by the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program, which is supported by a gross receipts tax on utilities.
The program also extends the $2,000 rebate for large-battery system plug-in hybrid electric and battery-electric vehicles. DEP is also extending rebates of $1,000 for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and battery-electric vehicles. A $500 rebate is available for electric motorcycles and scooters.
