The Texas Clean Fleet Program (TCFP) administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is providing incentives to owners of large fleets both public fleets like school districts and municipalities as well as private fleets in the state to replace diesel-powered vehicles with alternative fuel.

Texas Emission Reduction Grants (TERP) may result in cost reductions up to 80 percent off of heavy and light-duty vehicles.

Eligible Applicants. Owners of fleets of 75 or more vehicles operated in Texas, at least 20 of which are diesel-powered vehicles, may be eligible to apply for a grant under this new program.

Eligible Projects.
Replacement of on-road heavy-duty diesel vehicles (8,500 lbs. or more)
Replacement of on-road light-duty diesel vehicles (under 10,000 lbs.)

Qualifying Vehicles:
Alternative fuels, for this program, are limited to electricity, compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), hydrogen, propane (LPG), or a mixture of fuels containing at least 85% methanol by volume (M85).

Applications must be submitted by October 3, 2014 to be considered.
