Indiana gives grants to convert fleets to alternative fuels

September 10, 2011

The state’s Office of Energy Development is dispensing grants of up to $500,000 to help private- and public-sector fleets convert on-road vehicles to run on alternative fuels.

The grants also can be used to cover the cost difference between buying an AFV and a conventional vehicle.

Infrastructure costs, such as fuel pumps, are not eligible for the money, which comes from a pot of federal dollars.

The OED is accepting applications until Sept. 30. While matching funds aren’t required, they earn applicants additional points in the grant-scoring process. The minimum grant is $40,000.

A “fleet” consists of five or more vehicles. Visit www.energy.in.gov/2644.htm for more information.
