Rebates for Alternative Fuel Vehicles Still Available in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is reminding car buyers of rebates to assist with the cost of purchasing a new alternative fuel vehicle. These rebates are funded by the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program, which is supported by a gross receipts tax on utilities. To qualify, the vehicle must be registered in Pennsylvania, operated primarily in-state, and be purchased no more than six months before the rebate application is submitted. Rebates are available for new cars only.

“These vehicles are helping to reduce climate change causing emissions and are a part of a sustainable Pennsylvania,” said DEP Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell.

In addition to rebates for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, rebates of $1,000 are being offered for natural gas and other gaseous fueled vehicles. OEM retrofits or certified conversions to CNG or propane are also eligible for the $1,000 rebate.

There are only a limited number of rebates still available, and the rebate program will be reassessed December 31, 2016 if rebates remain unclaimed.
