ANNAPOLIS, Md. (April 30, 2014) — The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) has begun accepting applications for its Freedom Fleet Voucher (FFV) program.
The FFV program, according to the MEA, encourages the purchase of energy-saving alternative fuel vehicles and the establishment of an alternative fuel vehicle market.
Launched April 29, the FFV program will provide vouchers to at least 125 registered Maryland Motor Carriers to offset the additional costs of alternative fuel vehicles. Vouchers will be offered based on technology and gross vehicle weight, and will range from $3,000 to $20,000, the agency said.
Vehicles eligible for the voucher program include those powered by electricity, liquefied natural gas, compressed natural gas and propane, according to the agency. Hybrid electric and hydraulic hybrid vehicles also are eligible, according to the MEA.
Vehicles can be commercial, non-profit agency or public fleet vehicles, it said. Alternative-fueled or retrofitted vehicles purchased on or after April 29, 2014 are eligible for vouchers.
The MEA is accepting applications for FFV program vouchers until May 8, 2015.
