Delaware will offer $1.4 million in grants to businesses and fleet owners based in the state to increase their use of alternative-fueled vehicles by expanding the state’s network of alternative fueling stations.

The Delaware Division of Energy & Climate, which announced opportunity on Oct. 20, is offering the grants to offset the costs of equipment associated with the installation of private or public alternative-fueling infrastructure, including, but not limited to, DC fast electric vehicle charging stations, natural gas fueling stations, propane fueling stations and hydrogen fueling stations.

This grant opportunity is part of the Delaware Clean Transportation Incentive Program, which provides a foundation for promoting deployment of alternatively-fueled vehicles and the infrastructure to support them. The program’s goal is to further encourage the development of Delaware’s clean energy economy.

Grant funding will be awarded on a competitive basis up to a maximum amount of $500,000 per applicant. The grants will be awarded to Delaware-based business, counties, municipalities, state agencies, academic institutions or non-governmental organizations.
