The Coalition is pleased to announce two new alternative fuel vehicle rebate programs!
Applications accepted now until Tuesday, March 31st.
Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle Rebate
The Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition was awarded a grant from the Teton Conservation District (TCD) to provide educational and financial support to regional organizations and individuals to assist in their purchase of alternative fuel vehicles (AFV). More specifically, the program aims to displace petroleum consumption by replacing conventional vehicles with compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles and to help build a fleet to utilize the CNG fueling station that will be installed in the spring of 2015 at Shervin’s Independent Oil. Accompanying educational platforms include workshops discussing CNG vehicles and are open to interested participants free of charge. The rebate program will provide cost shares for 12 EPA certified original equipment manufacturer CNG vehicles or EPA certified CNG conversions of conventional vehicles. EPA certified CNG conversion information can be found at http://www.ngvamerica.org/vehicles/vehicle-availability/. Each entity is eligible to apply for a rebate to assist in their purchase of or conversion to a CNG vehicle. The financial support will cover 50% of the marginal increase in price of the OEM CNG vehicle over the conventionally fueled model, or 50% of the cost of the EPA certified conversion kit and installation to CNG, up to a maximum of $2,000.00.
Alternative Fuels Vehicle Rebate
The Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition (YTCEC) was awarded a grant through the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Source Reduction Assistance (SRA) to provide educational and financial support to regional organizations and individuals to employ more efficient driving techniques and assist in the purchase of alternative fuel vehicles in the form of rebates. Educational platforms include workshops and are open to interested participants free of charge. Rebates are available to those who attend at least one workshop. Financial support is on the order of a $3,000.00 cost share towards the purchase of an alternative fuel vehicle to displace petroleum and replace a conventionally fueled vehicle. The program will support propane and electric vehicle technologies.
