EPA DERA Grant Webinar Today! 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is excited to announce the availability of approximately $40 million in Diesel Emission Reduction Program (DERA) funds to support projects aimed at reducing emissions from the nation’s existing fleet of older diesel engines. Under this competition, between 20 and 80 awards are anticipated to be made to eligible applicants.
Eligible applicants include regional, state, local or tribal agencies, or port authorities, with jurisdiction over transportation or air quality. Nonprofit organizations may apply if they provide pollution reduction or educational services to diesel fleet owners or have, as their principal purpose, the promotion of transportation or air quality.

Alternative Fuel Signage Coming Soon...

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is installing CNG and LNG signs on designated highways near fueling stations in Austin, Dallas, DeSoto, Irving, Longview and Tyler. TxDOT’s first installation phase comprises 92 CNG or LNG signs in 51 locations, including signs for CNG 4 America’s station in Austin, Clean Energy’s Austin-Bergstrom International Airport station and First Alt Fuel’s station in Tyler. 

“Natural gas vehicles are key in diversifying our transportation fuel mix by utilizing domestic fuels that are clean, efficient, affordable and produced here in Texas,” Representative Jason Isaac (R-Dripping Springs) said. “As more Texans make the switch to natural gas, these signs reinforce that we have the infrastructure to support them.”
