The Nebraska Energy Office is offering rebates for clean-burning fuel vehicles.
The program provides up to $4,500 when you buy a conversion kit or a new vehicle that runs on compressed or liquid natural gas, hydrogen fuel cell, liquid petroleum gas, or more than 15% ethanol.
Energy Office Director David Bracht says the program has generated a lot of interest.
“I think Nebraskans are looking at different kinds of energy,” Bracht says. “I think we’re seeing a wide variety of different types of fuels being considered by Nebraskans now.”
The rebate program also offers up to $2,500 to install new fuel dispensing equipment.
“With the right equipment, you can also hook up to your natural gas at your home, making sure that it’s installed by someone who’s certified to do that,” he says. “They can purchase that equipment, have it installed, and they would be eligible then for a rebate.”
Purchases must have been made on or after January 4, 2016.
