Pennsylvania recently announced $2.1 million in Alternative Fuels Incentive Grants to municipalities and businesses for 99 electric vehicles and more clean fuel transportation projects to improve air quality in their communities.
Middletown Township is set to receive $215,000 to install four DC fast chargers for the public to use to charge electric cars.
“Transportation is one of the biggest sources of air pollution in Pennsylvania. That’s why investing in zero- and low-emission transportation pays off big. It helps us breathe healthier air and slow down climate change,” said Department of Environmental Protection Executive Deputy Secretary Ramez Ziadeh. “Through Alternative Fuels Incentive Grants, DEP assists businesses and organizations of all sizes in pursuing their clean fuel transportation goals. With this round of grants, we’re excited to support 99 electric vehicles, charger installations and more transportation upgrades that will drive better air quality in Pennsylvania.”
