*Update April 4, 2016: The Connecticut Clean Fuel Program has been discontinued effective immediately. Read the official notice.
Opened March 16, 2016
Closes: April 29, 2016
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) has allocated funding that allows for the purchase of clean fuel vehicles and/or EPA approved diesel retrofit technologies. CT DOT is seeking proposals from public entities that want to add alternative fuel vehicles (AFV), clean fuel vehicles (CFV), or diesel retrofit technologies (DRT) to their operations. Typically, CFVs tend to operate as hybrid electric vehicles, or operate on compressed natural gas (CNG), propane, or electricity. Typically, DRT involves the addition of an emission control device to remove emissions from the engine exhaust. Examples of emission control devices used for diesel retrofit include diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters, exhaust gas recirculation, and closed crankcase filtration systems.
The Connecticut Clean Fuel (CCF) program is intended to improve air quality, reduce our dependency on petroleum based fuels and enhance public awareness of alternative fuel based technologies by providing incentives for entities to adopt clean fuel technologies. These technologies may provide cost savings in purchased fuel and vehicle maintenance.
The Request for Proposal that describes the program, application form, and contact information are available on the Department’s Bids/RFPs portal located on the web at www.ct.gov/dot.
