MD Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Program Deadline Approaching
By Mike Jones, Energy Program Manager
Remember, the December 31, 2019 deadline for FY20 Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Program (AFIP) applications is fast approaching. The FY20 AFIP is intended to aid in the development of alternative fuel refilling/charging infrastructure in the state of Maryland. As such, MEA anticipates issuing one or more grants to applicants for the installation of alternative fuel refilling/charging stations in Maryland. Awards will be issued on a competitive basis.
For more information on the program, including the guidelines and application form, please visit the program website here. Contact Mike Jones, MEA Transportation Energy Program Manager via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Did you know, AFIP has helped to install more than 130 new electric charging and alternative fueling outlets throughout the state over the past three years? Establishing enough refilling or charging options is critical to consumer confidence. Range anxiety is the fear that a vehicle has insufficient range to reach its destination and would thus strand the vehicle’s occupants. In Maryland, AFIP is addressing range anxiety for local drivers and as well as travelers passing along the coast.
