Deadline extended for Nebraska Clean Diesel Rebate Program
The Nebraska Clean Diesel Rebate Program deadline has been extended to 5:00 p.m. on February 15, 2018. The program offers rebates to replace eligible agricultural irrigation pump diesel engines with electric motors.
NDEQ will reimburse 60 percent of the cost of the new electric motor, installation, and required electrical infrastructure (including electric service line extension) up to a maximum rebate of $16,200.
The pump engine owner is responsible for the remainder of the project costs (mandatory cost-share). Replacement incentives offered by electric service providers may be used to pay a portion of the mandatory cost-share. No other federal grant funds may be used to cover a portion of the mandatory cost-share.
In order to ensure emissions reductions are achieved through this program, the diesel engine being replaced must be permanently disabled within 90 days of replacement. Replacement projects must be completed by August 30, 2018.
NDEQ anticipates awarding rebates for five irrigation pump engine replacements. Individual applicants may submit one application for a rebate for one engine. The number of irrigation pump engine rebates will be determined by NDEQ after evaluating applications for all Nebraska Clean Diesel programs.
