News Journal: Delaware clean-fuel vehicle buyers offered subsidies

Delaware residents and businesses can get financial help to buy cleaner-fueled vehicles under a new program announced Thursday by Gov. Jack Markell. The Clean Transportation Incentive Program will provide rebates or grants to support electric or alternative-fuel vehicle purchases and installations or investments that expand clean-fuel refueling networks.

The program will make available up to:

• $2,200 for purchase of a new battery or plug-in hybrid vehicle.

• $1,100 for new or retrofitted propane or natural gas vehicle or retrofitted electric models.

• $20,000 per vehicle for purchases of new, dedicated natural gas fuel systems for tractor-trailers or other heavy vehicles.

• $500 to help buy and install electric vehicle charging equipment.
