Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection Launches Website on Natural Gas Fleet Conversions

June 04, 2012

HARRISBURG, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has announced a new section of its website that’s designed to help municipal (and commercial) fleets make decisions about converting their fleets to compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas. DEP made this announcement in advance of $20 million in grants over three years that can help pay for natural gas fleet vehicle conversions.

"This new website will put information at the fingertips of those who are interested in learning more about natural gas vehicles," Public Utility Commission Chairman Robert F. Powelson said. "As we found with our recent forum on alternative fuel vehicles, people are eager to explore the role of natural gas vehicles in Pennsylvania.

The new website provides information about the Natural Gas Energy Development Program and about existing NGV fueling tools and resources, such as cost-savings calculators, fueling maps, and technical assistance sites. DEP said that those interested should register on the site to be notified of workshop dates, about the opening of the initial grant round, and about other outreach opportunities.

DEP stated it will host six regional NGV seminars in the fall, and that it may host additional sessions for specific groups, such as municipal associations, school board associations, and public transportation groups.

You can visit the site at and then by clicking on the Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program button.
