Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Infrastructure Rebate Program

The Arkansas Energy Office, a division of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, administers the Arkansas Gaseous Fuels Vehicle Rebate Program (Program), funded by the Clean-Burning Motor Fuel Development Fund. The Program provides 50% of the incremental cost, up to $4,500, of a qualified natural gas or propane vehicle, and provides 50% of the conversion cost, up to $2,500, for hydrogen fuel cell, natural gas, or propane vehicles. Compressed natural gas (CNG) must be delivered to a vehicle at 3,000 pounds (lbs.) per square inch and metered on a gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE); liquefied natural gas (LNG) must be metered on a diesel gallon equivalent (DGE). One GGE of CNG is equal to 5.66 lbs. and one DGE of LNG is equal to 6.22 lbs. The Arkansas Energy Office reviews and processes vehicle rebate applications on a first-come, first-served basis. Rebates are also available for natural gas and propane fueling stations in the amount of 75% of qualifying costs, up to $400,000. The Program is currently closed and no funding is available (verified February 2017). (Reference Arkansas Code 15-10-901 to 15-10-904 and 19-5-1249)
