This bill would establish a public-private alternative fueling station pilot program. The Department of Transportation (DOT), in consultation with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA), and the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA), would promulgate guidelines for the creation of an alternative fueling station pilot program, for use by government-owned or privately-owned vehicles. Under the bill, the DOT would work with public utilities and private fuel station vendors to offer alternative fuels at public, private, and government-owned or operated fueling stations, and may enter into an agreement with one or more private entities or public utilities. The pilot program would include at least one alternative fueling station located in each of the northern, central and southern regions of the State, and at least one alternative fueling station would be a charging station. The DOT, in consultation with the DEP, the NJTA, and the SJTA, would, within one year after the date of enactment of this bill into law, conduct a study and prepare and submit to the Legislature a written report analyzing the pilot program and making recommendations concerning: (1) continuation of any State partnership with a private entity or public utility, (2) increased access to, or increasing the number of, alternative fueling and charging stations in the State, and (3) identification of highway rest stops in the State where alternative fueling stations, including charging stations, can be installed. The report would also include a proposal and plan for the State to install at least one charging station in each of the northern, central, and southern regions of the State. The DOT would be able to consult with any private entities or public utilities that are interested in installing a charging station or have already installed such a system. Upon completion of the report, the DOT, or other appropriate executive department or independent authority, would apply for any available federal grants or other funds for the purposes of establishing alternative fueling stations. Upon receipt of any federal grants or other funds, or any State funds made available for the purpose, the DOT would install a charging station in each of the three regions of the State, pursuant to the plan established in the report.
