State grant for cleaner-running fleets closes Aug. 31

Friday, August 02, 2013

Reminder: Don't miss the Aug. 31, 2013, deadline for a pollution-curbing state grant to replace older forklifts and medium- or heavy-duty diesel vehicles with low-emission fleets. Public, private and nonprofit fleets in selected areas are potentially eligible.

The $6 million Railroad Commission Alternative Fuels Equipment Initiative, funded through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's Texas Emissions Reduction Plan, averages $9,500 per award and covers eligible new equipment that meets current emissions standards and will be operated in one of more than three dozen eligible Texas counties.

Replacement vehicles and equipment fueled by natural gas and propane are expected to help grant program participants cut fuel costs and reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by more than 600 tons, according to an earlier Railroad Commission (RRC) of Texas news release.

Potential applicants are encouraged to contact the RRC's Pat Wilson at 512-475-2911 or soon.
