[Saturday, June 13, 2009]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), Bureau of Energy, Innovations and Technology Deployment announces an opportunity to apply for Nitrogen Tire Inflation System Grants under the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program (Grant Program). The primary goals of this direct reimbursement Grant Program are to help improve vehicle fuel economy while reducing the consumption of imported oil, and to potentially extend vehicle tire wear over time. Deployment of fuel saving technologies also provides for opportunities to better manage our fuel and natural resources in a way that also improves our environment and enhances our quality of life. The Department is seeking applications for nitrogen tire inflation systems purchased and installed in the Commonwealth.
Funds awarded under the Grants Program can be used to reimburse a portion of the cost to purchase systems that deliver at least 95% nitrogen purity according to manufacturer specifications. Eligible applicants include automotive service providers who sell tires in the Commonwealth. Eligible applicants with 50% match of the total system cost may request up to $5,000 reimbursement for systems purchased and installed after July 1, 2008.

O. Box 8772, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8772, (717) 783-8411.
