Congress Passes Tax Credits for Alternative Fuels!

Late Thursday evening in Washington, D.C. Congress passed the 2011 tax package, which includes incentives for the purchase of alternative fuels. According to the Associated Press, the package consists of “A series of incentives for selling, using and producing alternative fuels, including ethanol. Many of the provisions expired at the end of 2009. They would be extended through 2011. Cost: $11.3 billion” (Associated Press). In addition, the tax extension includes tax credits provided to property owners, both residential (up to $1,000) and commercial (up to $30,000), for installing electric vehicle charging systems in their home or workplace. In a press release the Electric Drive Transportation Association stated, “We applaud Congress for extending these charging station tax-credits for the growth of plug-in electric vehicles in the U.S.”. In addition, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives reinstated a biodiesel tax incentive that had been eliminated in 2009. In an announcement presented on the website it said, “The biodiesel tax incentive is structured in a manner that makes the fuel price competitive with conventional diesel fuel in the marketplace.” ( Lastly, the new Tax Bill for CNG and propane, “…extends the 50 cents per gallon excise tax credit retroactively for calendar year 2010 and through December 31, 2011. It also extends tax credit incentives for developing natural gas fueling infrastructure,” ( All of these tax credits and incentives are expected to be signed into law by President Obama today, Friday December 17, 2010.

These alternative fuel and technology tax credits and incentives will continue to help the U.S. become more educated about alternative fuel energies, create more U.S. jobs and become less dependent on foreign oil- a step forward to ensuring air quality for future generations.
