Delaware Laws and Incentives for Acquisition / Fuel Use
The list below contains summaries of all Delaware laws and incentives related to Acquisition / Fuel Use.
Laws and Regulations
State Agency Energy Plan
To improve air quality and reduce operating expenses from state vehicle use, all state agencies must reduce petroleum consumption by 25%, vehicle emissions by 25%, and vehicle miles traveled by 15% as compared to Fiscal Year 2008 levels by the end of 2012. This will be achieved through alternative fuel vehicle acquisition, alternative fuel use, and implementation of idle reduction measures. (Reference Executive Order 18, 2010)
Alternative Fuel and Advanced Vehicle Acquisition Requirements
All new light-duty vehicles that Delaware state agencies, departments, and offices purchase must be hybrid electric, alternative fuel, fuel-efficient, or low emission vehicles, unless such a purchase compromises health, safety, or law enforcement needs. Additionally, the state must develop procedures for diesel fleet vehicles to use biodiesel fuel blends of the highest practical percent. (Reference Executive Order 18, 2010)
