Rebates are available to propane customers who reside in Hawaii, Oregon or Washington where rebate is available who purchase a new propane vehicle or convert an existing vehicle with a propane system. Propane companies and their employees are eligible to receive rebates.
The rebate program ends December 31, 2022, or when program funds are exhausted. The payment of a rebate under the program or this agreement is subject to available funds. If available funds run out during the program year, PPGA may elect to carry over applications until the next program year. All eligible purchases or retrofit installations must occur during the rebate program. Completed and approved applications should have a rebate check issued within 60-90 days after the application is received at the PPGA office, subject to available funds. No applicant has a legal right or other entitlement to receive rebates under the program or this agreement. A completed application does not bind PPGA to approve or pay a rebate to any applicant. An applicant or propane marketer may be suspended from, or declared ineligible to participate in the rebate program if the PPGA determines that the applicant or propane marketer has submitted false information or otherwise violated program terms and conditions. Within 30 days after PPGA suspends or declares an applicant or propane marketer ineligible, the applicant or propane marketer may appeal the action by submitting the appeal in writing to PPGA. Actions taken by PPGA with respect to the appeal will be final. An applicant or propane marketer who submits false information pertinent to a rebate is subject to criminal and civil penalties including U.S. Mail fraud.
Any vehicle or retrofit system that is approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and/or the California Air Resources Board, and is registered and operated in Hawaii, Oregon or Washington, is eligible for a $1,500 incentive payment. All federal and state incentives must be applied prior to receiving rebate funds, and the funds may be used for the incremental cost of propane vehicle versus gasoline or diesel vehicle only. Vehicles must be purchased in 2022.
An initial survey and final survey completed electronically are required for each vehicle receiving an incentive. and anecdotal performance characteristics that will be submitted electronically a year from the time the rebate is received. The data collected will be used to produce a document which will assist the propane industry and vehicle manufacturers with necessary data needed to evaluate vehicle performance on propane vs. gasoline, to make improvements to the vehicles and to sell the use of propane as an alternative motor fuel. 50% of the incentive will be paid after the application is submitted and the initial survey is completed. The second 50% of the incentive will be paid after the final survey is completed and the data report is completed.
