The state Department of Environmental Protection will hold a natural gas vehicle seminar Oct. 17 at Pennsylvania College of Technology.
It is among several meetings being held statewide to to help municipal and commercial fleet owners make informed decisions about converting their fleets to compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas.
Revenue from the impact fees assessed on unconventional wells is to be used to promote the fleet conversions.
Act 13 of 2012 authorized DEP to develop and implement a Natural Gas Energy Development Program to distribute up to $20 million in grants over the next three years to help pay for the incremental purchase and conversion costs of natural gas fleet vehicles.
