Funding for NOx Reductions
The MWCOG administers the Advanced Technology Vehicle Program - The Clean Alternative, which is funded by the MDOT and offers flexible incentives to private companies and local governments to cover the incremental cost of clean-fuel vehicles that reduce NOx emissions. In order to qualify for these incentives, interested businesses/organizations must meet certain criteria: the business/organization must have been in operation at least five years and have more than 10 vehicles in their fleet (exceptions may be made); fuel use must be greater than 3,000 gallons, or more than 45,000 miles traveled per year/per vehicle; the clean vehicle being introduced should reduce NOx; and the vehicles must be registered in Maryland and operate in the Washington, DC metropolitan area or the Baltimore metropolitan area. The exact amount of financial support is determined on a case-by-case basis, taking expected emissions benefits and other criteria into consideration.
