LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Energy Office says the Clean Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program has been closed after all the program’s funds were spent.

Nearly $150,000 in rebates was awarded through the program, which is part of the Arkansas Gaseous Fuels Rebate Program. Rebates were awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

The program allowed fleet operators to purchase or convert existing vehicles to natural gas or propane. The rebate amount depends on the cost of conversion or the incremental cost of a clean fuel vehicle and allows for a rebate equal to the lesser of 50 percent of the conversion or incremental cost, or $4,500 per vehicle.

The Arkansas Gaseous Fuels Rebate Program supports development of alternative fuel filling stations and incentives for the purchase or conversion of fleet vehicles to clean-burning fuels.
