Hundreds of NGVs, Propane Vehicles Benefit from Grant Support


Pennsylvania state officials announced a number of Alternative Fuel Incentive Grant (AFIG) awardees this week, with nearly three dozen fleets receiving funds to support a variety of alt-fuel vehicle initiatives.

This year, the annual AFIG program focused mainly on providing grants for the conversion or purchase of light- and medium-duty natural gas vehicles and propane vehicles – more than 500, in total – as well as a number of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles. Awardees included local governments, nonprofits and private companies.

Among the fleets that received funding:

  • Bimbo Bakeries: Four grants to convert a total of 81 delivery vehicles to compressed natural gas (CNG)
  • Cambria County Transit Authority: Purchase six CNG mini-buses
  • Montgomery County: Purchase 10 vehicles (CNG, propane and hybrid electric)
  • Seven Springs Mountain Resort: Purchase five propane passenger buses
  • UGI Pennsylvania: Purchase 18 CNG vehicles
