Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program; Pennsylvania Turnpike Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure; Solicitation

[41 Pa.B. 3059]
[Saturday, June 11, 2011]

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), Bureau of Energy, Innovations and Technology Deployment announces an opportunity to apply for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Grant as part of a special solicitation under the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program. With the advent of new electric vehicle (EV) technology, the Department is partnering with the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) to establish the necessary infrastructure to support EV travel and transport along the Turnpike system. The Turnpike system includes the main east to west corridor stretching between New Jersey and Ohio as well as the northeast and southwest extensions.

 This solicitation is necessary to facilitate travel by EV along the Turnpike and to eliminate the need for travelers to exit and reenter the Turnpike after charging their vehicles. The Department is interested in receiving proposals that will establish EV recharging infrastructure at each service plaza throughout the Turnpike system.

 This grant solicitation provides corporations, limited liability companies and partnerships incorporated or registered in this Commonwealth with the opportunity to receive a matching reimbursement grant to install EV charging systems along the Turnpike. It is anticipated that one award of up to $1 million will be made to meet the needs of this solicitation. Additionally, the PTC has committed $500,000 towards increased voltage upgrades that may be necessary to facilitate the installation of EV charging equipment.

 Beginning on June 11, 2011, the solicitation guidelines and application will be available on the Department's web site at (click on ''DEP Programs'' and then ''Alternative Fuels''). Applications will be accepted from June 11, 2011, through July 29, 2011.
