Funds available for alternative fuel, natural gas fueling stations

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) made available about $17.7 million in grants to continue the development of a network of natural gas and other alternative fuel fueling stations to serve as a foundation for a self-sustaining market for alternative fuel vehicles in the state. 

About $9.8 million is available for projects under the Clean Transportation Triangle (CTT) and $7.9 million is being offered under the Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP). The grants are part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP), and are offered to eligible entities that intend to build, own and operate alternative fuel or natural gas fueling stations in eligible Texas counties, which includes Bastrop, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Travis and Williamson counties for the CTT program.
 
The grants offset a portion of the cost for the construction of new facilities dispensing natural gas or alternative fuels, or the substantial reconstruction of existing facilities to provide new services or capabilities dispensing natural gas or alternative fuels. Eligible fuels for the CTT program include compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas. Eligible alternative fuels for the AFFP include biodiesel, hydrogen, methanol, natural gas, propane, and electricity. 
 
TCEQ will accept applications until 5 p.m., Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
 
Three application workshops are scheduled to review the grants’ requirements and application process.
