TCEQ Says Grants Available for Gas Fueling Stations (USA)
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality announced that up to $4.5 million in grants is being made available to eligible individuals, businesses, and governmental entities to support the development of a network of natural gas vehicle fueling stations to serve as a foundation for a self-sustaining market for natural gas vehicles in Texas.
The TCEQ Clean Transportation Triangle grants are part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan, and are offered to eligible entities that intend to build natural gas fueling stations along the interstate highways connecting Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, and Fort Worth. These fueling stations must be located no more than three miles from the interstate highways and must be made available to the public.
CTT program goals include ensuring that natural gas vehicles purchased, leased or otherwise commercially financed, or re-powered under the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program have access to fuel; and building the foundation for a self-sustaining market for natural gas vehicles in Texas.
Grants are offered to eligible applicants, with preference to be given to stations providing both liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas at a single location; and stations located not more than one mile for an interstate highway system.
Application deadline is April 16, 2012.
