Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Acquisition Requirements

Archived: 05/31/2010

Maryland established an AFV goal under the plan for 'Sustaining Maryland's Future with Clean Power, Green Buildings and Energy Efficiency.' The state will revise fleet policy and purchasing guidelines to offer more flexibility in purchasing, where practical, low emission vehicles and AFVs for its fleet. The state must ensure that an average of 50% of the fuel used to operate bi-fuel and flexible fuel vehicles are alternative fuel. The state must also help develop the refueling and maintenance infrastructure required to make using certain types of AFV use practical. The state may provide technical assistance and other incentives to use clean technology, where practical, in state transit fleets. (Reference Executive Order 01.01.2001.02)
