Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program

[40 Pa.B. 1978]
[Saturday, April 10, 2010]

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces an opportunity for individuals to qualify for rebates under the Department's Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program (Program). The Program, authorized through the July 4, 2008, amendment of the Alternative Fuel Incentive Act (Act 178 of 2004), provides $500 rebates to assist with the incremental costs of purchasing a new alternative fuel vehicle. Alternative fuel vehicles include plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles, natural gas vehicles, propane-powered vehicles, hydrogen vehicles and fuel cell vehicles. Retrofits of original equipment manufacturer vehicles are not eligible. The Program was established to help reduce this Commonwealth's dependence on imported oil and to improve the environmental quality by using alternative fuels.

 To qualify for the $500 rebate, the alternative fuel vehicle must be registered in and primarily operated within this Commonwealth. A list of eligible vehicles may be obtained from the Department's web site at (DEP Keyword: ''Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebates''). The rebates will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available. A total of $500,000 is available for allocation under the Program. Rebate request forms and required documentation must be postmarked no later than 6 months after the vehicle is purchased.

 Rebate forms, along with additional information about the Program, may be obtained on the Department's web site at (DEP Keyword: ''Alternative Fuels'') or by contacting the Program at (866) 294-3854, (717) 214-3492 or
