Delaware Governor Jack Markell joined DNREC Secretary David Small in a ceremony this week to announce the recipients of Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Grants, which will help fund alternative fuel infrastructure across the state.
The grants are part of Delaware’s Clean Transportation Incentive Program, funded through Delaware’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative cap-and-trade program. Totaling more than $1 million, the grants announced this week include awards to install DC fast charging stations for electric vehicles as well as CNG and propane fueling stations. The EV infrastructure grants range from $8,846 to $349,902, depending on the scope and technology needs of each project and will be applied toward 15 chargers at eight locations.
The grant recipients for DC Fast Charging Stations are:
The Delaware Division of Parks & Recreation – $55,962, to install two D.C. Fast Charging Stations at Blue Ball Barn in Wilmington and Indian River Marina.
Royal Farms – $349,902, to install 10 D.C. Fast Charging Stations at five Delaware stores in Smyrna, Dover, Milford, Georgetown and Laurel.
The University of Delaware – $8,846, to install three Level 3 Charging Stations on the University of Delaware Campus, including one public charging station.
“Delaware has been a leader in reducing emissions while still remaining dedicated to economic growth as well as promoting the health of our residents and our environment,” said Governor Markell. “Through our participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the Delaware Clean Transportation Incentive Program, we’ve been able to secure funding that helps us reduce our environmental footprint and combat climate change by promoting the use of alternative fuels and supporting alternative fuel infrastructure throughout the state.”
