[43 Pa.B. 7585]
[Saturday, December 28, 2013]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces the continued availability of grants to Commonwealth residents under the Pennsylvania Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program (program). The program, administered by the Department through the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program, provides rebates to Commonwealth residents to assist individuals with the incremental costs of purchasing an alternative fuel vehicle.
To qualify for the rebate, the alternative fuel vehicle must be registered in this Commonwealth and be operated primarily within this Commonwealth. The rebate will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis in the order in which they are received. Rebate request forms and required documentation must be submitted to the Department no later than 6 months after the vehicle is purchased.
The following rebates are offered:
• $2,000 rebate for a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) (battery system capacity equal/greater than 10 kWh) or battery electric vehicle (EV) (battery system capacity equal/greater than 10 kWh) (does not include electric motorcycle, scooter, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or low speed electric vehicle).
• $1,000 rebate for a PHEV or EV (battery system capacity less than 10 kWh) (does not include electric motorcycle, scooter, ATV or low speed electric vehicle).
• $1,000 rebate for a natural gas fueled vehicle. OEM/certified retrofit only.
• $1,000 rebate for a propane fueled vehicles. OEM/certified retrofit only.
• $1,000 rebate for a hydrogen vehicle or fuel cell vehicle, or both.
• $500 rebate for an electric motorcycle, scooter, ATV or other low speed electric vehicle if registered in this Commonwealth.
There are only a limited number of rebates left at $3,000. Upon payment of the first 500 rebates at $3,000, the rebate amount for PHEVs and EVs (battery system capacity equal/greater than 10 kWh) will be reduced to $2,000 for the next 500 qualified applicants or until June 30, 2014, whichever occurs first. The rebate amount offered in the future will be reassessed at that time.
The Department encourages interested applicants to visit the web site for rebate forms and an up-to-date listing of rebate availability at www.dep.state.pa.us, keyword: Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebates. The remaining rebates available for PHEVs or EVs (battery system capacity equal/greater than 10 kWh) will be updated weekly.
