PA DEP Offers Rebates for Alternative Fuel Vehicles
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is offering rebates to Pennsylvania residents to assist with the cost of purchasing an alternative fuel vehicle, including natural gas vehicles.
“Alternative fuel vehicles are good for the climate and are a part of building a sustainable Pennsylvania,” DEP Secretary John Quigley said. “We encourage everyone to consider these renewable and clean technologies.”
These rebates are funded by the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program, which is supported by a gross receipts tax on utilities. 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.
Rebates of $1,000 are being offered for natural gas, propane, hydrogen or fuel-cell vehicles. CNG original equipment, manufacturer retrofits, or certified conversions to CNG are also eligible for the $1,000 rebate.
