This bill would allow the owner of a diesel commercial bus or diesel solid waste vehicle, in lieu of completing the retrofitting for control of particulate matter pollution which is required of such diesel vehicles pursuant to P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.26 et seq.), to convert the bus or vehicle to one that is powered by compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, or electricity instead of diesel fuel. The bill would authorize the Department of Environmental Protection to provide a grant, upon proper application therefor, from the Diesel Risk Mitigation Fund to any owner of a regulated commercial bus, regulated solid waste vehicle, or diesel-powered school bus who wishes to convert the bus or vehicle to one that is powered by compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, or electricity instead of diesel fuel. The grant would be used to reimburse the owner for the costs of the conversion. The bill also specifies that if, pursuant to P.L.2005, C.219, a bus or vehicle has already been retrofitted or a school bus has been equipped with closed crankcase technology, that bus or vehicle would not be eligible for a conversion grant under this bill. In addition, the bill would require the department to allocate at least 20 percent of the moneys annually credited to the Diesel Risk Mitigation Fund to fund the grants for conversions from diesel to compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, or electric power authorized in the bill.
