Clean Diesel Rebate Applications Accepted Through January 22,
Local Diesel Truck Replacements – Funding will assist with the early replacement of diesel trucks with new, cleaner trucks. Trucks eligible for replacement are heavy-duty diesel refuse trucks and medium to heavy-duty diesel trucks used in local construction, delivery, or maintenance operations. The new trucks may be powered by diesel engines or by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) engines that comply with stricter nitrogen oxide emission standards. NDEE will reimburse 35% of the cost of a new CNG-fueled truck up to a maximum of $120,000, or 25% of the cost of a new diesel truck up to a maximum of $70,000. NDEE anticipates funding replacement of five. Individual applicants may apply for a rebate for up to two trucks.
Agricultural Irrigation Pump Diesel Engine Replacement - Funding will assist farmers with the replacement of irrigation pump diesel engines with electric equipment. Diesel engines may be replaced with an electric motor to power a surface pump or by connecting an existing submersible pump directly to the electric grid. NDEE will reimburse 60% of the cost of the electrical equipment, installation, and required electric line extension up to a maximum of $20,000. NDEE anticipates funding 20 irrigation engine rebates.
· To be eligible, the existing diesel irrigation engine must have engine horsepower and model year within the ranges specified below:
