Pennsylvania: DEP announces NGV plan to speed vehicle fleet conversions
Through Act 13 of 2012, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will design and implement a Natural Gas Energy Development Program to distribute up to $20 million in grants over three years to help pay for the incremental purchase and conversion costs of NGVs. Along with the Public Utility Commission, the agency will also help municipal and commercial fleet owners make informed decisions about transitioning their fleets to CNG and LNG.
“These web-based resources will educate potential grant applicants in advance of workshops being scheduled for the fall,” said DEP Secretary Mike Krancer. “Website users have a unique opportunity to submit information to DEP about projects they may be considering, so that we can help make resulting grant applications competitive.”
In turn, Krancer explained: “Sharing this information not only helps us customize the program and workshop content, but it opens an early line of communication between DEP and potential applicants that allows us to work with and assist them throughout this process.”
The new website offers information on the Natural Gas Energy Development Program as well as existing NGV fueling tools and resources, such as cost-savings calculators, fueling maps and technical assistance sites.
