Over 400 APG’s dual fuel conversion grant applications accepted

Over 400 APG's dual fuel conversion grant applications accepted

American Power Group has received notice from TECQ that its dual fuel conversion applications for eligibility under the Emission Reduction Incentive Grants Program in the State of Texas have been accepted for over 400 of APG’s EPA approved Class 8 dual fuel engine families.

The TECQ administers the Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG) Program under the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) to provide grant funding for projects in certain eligible areas of Texas to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) through the replacement, repower or retrofit of heavy-duty vehicles and equipment.

Recent legislation addresses NOx reduction eligibility standards for projects to convert heavy-duty on-road diesel engines to operate under dual fuel configurations that use natural gas and diesel fuel. American Power Group applied for ERIG eligibility based on the prerequisite Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) approval of APG’s dual fuel conversion systems as listed on the EPA website.

Fleet and equipment owners can apply for these grants based on eligible emission reduction engine technologies. The grant recipient may be eligible for reimbursement of the incremental cost of the purchase and installation of the retrofit and/or add-on technology. The grant amounts are variable and may range from several thousand dollars up to $15,000 based on the total tonnage of estimated NOx reduction over the required life of the vehicle.
