Blair Businesses Awarded Impact Fee Grants for Natural Gas Vehicle Conversion



Two Blair County businesses are getting grant money from Harrisburg to aid in switching over to natural gas for their heavy-duty fleet vehicles.
 
Burgmeiers Hauling and Smith Transport have been included in the 18 companies and organizations across the state sharing more than $6.7 million in Act 13 funding.
 
Burgmeiers Hauling is getting almost $288,000 to purchase 12 Compressed Natural Gas trucks, while Smith Transport will buy 12 Liquefied Natural Gas vehicles with the $300,000 it is receiving
 
Act 13 of 2012 authorized the DEP to develop and implement the Natural Gas Energy Development program, which distributes up to $20 million in grants over three years to help pay for the incremental purchase and conversion costs of heavy-duty natural gas fleet vehicles.
