Florida's NGV Incentive Program Fuels Job Growth

October 07, 2014 - Press Release

Florida's $4.7 million in rebates to fund construction of natural gas vehicle fueling stations has created 1,820 jobs and $68 million in wages since it went into effect on Jan. 1, according to the Florida Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition (FNGVC).

The state offers the rebates under the Natural Gas Fleet Vehicle Rebate program. The state is measuring the economic impact using the RIMS II multipliers established by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Prior to the legislation, there were 18 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations in Florida. There are now 61 active CNG fueling stations with an additional 29 planned, marking a 238 percent increase in two years.

Fleets using the stations include Champion brands, a beer distributor, UPS, Raven Trucking, taxis, a seafood wholesaler, local government, and the Jacksonville Transit Authority.
