Arkansas launches rebates to fund stations
Most of the sum – approx. $1,2 million – will be used to fund entirely new autogas refueling stations or to incorporate LPG into already existing stations that haven't offered this alternative before. All of these stations must be publicly accessible, including up to three located in densely populated areas.
Furthermore, the AEO has announced that an additional sum of 115 thousand dollars (in rebates) will be available through the Clean Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program, which itself if a part of the Gaseous Fuels Rebate Program. The Clean Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program is for fleet operators and individual drivers who wish to convert an existing vehicle or buy a new one powered with CNG or LPG.
The amount of rebate applicable depends on the cost of conversion or incremental cost of a clean fuel vehicle and allows for a rebate equal to the lesser of 50 percent of the conversion/incremental cost or $4,500 per vehicle. According to estimates, approx. 25 vehicles will be eligible for the rebates. As AEO points out, the rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so anyone interested should hurry and apply as soon as possible.
