Delaware Expands Clean Vehicle Rebates to Include Bi-Fuel Vehicles
DNREC’s Division of Energy & Climate is expanding its popular Clean Vehicle Rebate program to include rebates for bi-fuel vehicles –natural gas or propane powered vehicles that also run on either gasoline or diesel. Delaware drivers will be eligible for a $1,350 rebate on bi-fuel vehicles purchased on or after January 1, 2017.
“Switching to propane or natural gas vehicles saves businesses money and keeps harmful greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere,” said DNREC Clean Transportation Planner Kathy Harris. “Bi-fuel vehicles can be a good option for fleets looking to introduce clean fuels into their operations while Delaware continues to build its alternative fuel infrastructure.”
The Division of Energy & Climate offers a $1,500 rebate for vehicles that run exclusively on natural gas or propane. Within the first 18 months of this program, several Delaware businesses and drivers have made the switch to natural gas, receiving rebates for their alternative fuel vehicles.
