Autogas Refueling Infrastructure Incentive Program
The goal of the Refueling Infrastructure Incentive Program is to increase the number of Self- Service Public-Access refueling facilities for propane vehicles across the state of MN. Possible locations of such a facility would be:
School Bus Incentive Program
$5,000 incentive for the purchase of a NEW propane school bus.
96% NOx Reduction with Propane vs Clean Deisel.
Faster Refueling Time:
Propane Autogas Bus = 13 minutes
Electric Bus = up to 6 hours
Propane = 400 + miles
Electric – up to 120 miles
Vehicle Incentive Program
$5,000 incentive for the conversion of gasoline vehicles to propane.
Propane’s carbon footprint is smaller than almost any alternative –
Fuel Type Carbon Intensity (g CO2/MJ)
Natural Gas 87
Renewable LPG 45
Irrigation Engine Incentive Program
$300 per liter for 2016 model year or newer irrigation engines (purchase new or conversion of gasoline engine)
Propane irrigation engines reduce sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxide, and greenhouse gas emissions by the % indicated in the chart below.
Fuel Type SOX NOx GHG
Gasoline 17% 20% 18%
Diesel 9% 8%
(assumed 5.7L engines, 100 horsepower operating 1034 hrs./year)
