The Problem: Conventionally fueled vehicles often produce high levels of pollution. Barriers exist to the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) in Colorado due to the lack of fueling infrastructure and high up-front vehicle costs. Incentivizing AFVs helps improve the region’s air quality.
The Program: ALT Fuels Colorado removes barriers to the adoption of AFVs. The program addresses the lack of fueling infrastructure by providing funding for alternative fueling stations and addresses the initial cost of AFVs by providing incentives to offset incremental costs. The ALT Fuels Colorado program is managed in partnership with the Colorado Energy Office (CEO), Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC), Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). CEO will administer infrastructure grants and RAQC will administer vehicle grants.
