Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Incentives

Expired: 10/01/2005

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 dedicated CNG and other AFVs that reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx). 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; 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.
