Biofuels Infrastructure Grants

Expired: 04/30/2013

Through the Biofuels Blender Pump Program, the North Dakota Department of Commerce offers cost-share grants of up to $5,000 per fueling pump, up to $20,000 per retail location, to motor fuel retailers who install qualified biofuel blender pumps and associated equipment. Qualified retailers are also eligible for grants of up to $14,000 at each retail location for tanks and piping installed at the same time the blender pump is installed. A qualified ethanol retail blender pump must:

  • Dispense a blend of gasoline and ethanol in the ratio the purchaser selects;
  • Meet an industry standard and carry a warranty for compatibility with dispenser components and storage and piping systems;
  • Have at least four hoses and dispense either a blend of 10% ethanol (E10) or the minimum blend percentage the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved for use in all vehicles, a blend of at least 20% ethanol (E20), and E85; and
  • Comply with all alternative fuel, biofuel, and flexible fuel requirements established by law.

Grant recipients must continue to sell biofuel blends for at least 12 months after receiving funding. This incentive is available through April 30, 2013. (Reference North Dakota Century Code 17-09)
