The Colorado Energy Office (CEO) has launched the second round of funding for the ALT Fuels Colorado grant program. In partnership with the Regional Air Quality Council and the Colorado Department of Transportation, the CEO is seeking new bids under Round II and has released a request for applications.
ALT Fuels Colorado provides partial funding of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station equipment, as well as of co-located electric vehicle charging and propane autogas station equipment. According to the CEO, the program is designed to remove barriers to the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles and address the lack of fueling infrastructure for them. Alt Fuels Colorado aims to distribute approximately $30 million through 2017.
Under Round I of the program, the CEO awarded grants to a handful of CNG station locations, which span the I-25 corridor, from Trinidad to Ft. Collins, and expand all the way west to Glenwood Springs.Â
For Round II, the CEO strongly encourages applicants to attend the pre-bid meeting on Jan. 15. The bid period ends Feb. 4. More information can be found here.
