Funding available to replace older, diesel vehicles

The deadline to apply for funding under the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition’s(ETCleanFuels) “Reducing Diesel Emissions for a Healthier Tennessee” (RDE4HT) Rebate Program is 5 p.m. CST on December 9.

The grant funding can be used to replace older, diesel vehicles that are class 5-8 with: (1) new alternative fuel vehicles that can run on propane, compressed natural gas or electricity, or that are hybrids; or (2) new diesel vehicles. It comes from the federal Environmental Protection Agency through the “Diesel Emissions Reductions Act” and is administered by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation in collaboration with ETCleanFuels.

More information will be available in a webinar scheduled for November 10 with the exact time to be announced before then. More details can be found here.
