The Arkansas Energy Office will hand out $150,000 in state rebates to fleet operators who convert vehicles to run on compressed natural gas, according to an announcement.
Fleet operators who convert to CNG or progane autogas or purchase a CNG or propane autogas vehicle are eligible for the Clean Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program, which is part of the Gaseous Fuels Rebate Program.
The rebate amount is dependent on the cost of the conversion or incremental cost of a clean fuel vehicle and allows for a rebate equivalent to the lesser of 50 percent of the conversion or incremental cost or $4,500 per vehicle.
Vehicles must be from the 2012 model year or later, and purchases made prior to Aug. 15, 2013 are not eligible.
