In September 2014, ER&R was awarded an Alternative Fuel Incentive Grant (AFIG) of $28,209.00 by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. This grant will assist us with adding alternative fuel options to our fleet vehicles. It is ER&R's philosphy to operate in a cost effective and environmentally responsible manner.
ER&R’s goal with this grant is to purchase two new bi-fuel vehicles(CNG and gasoline) and retrofit three existing fleet vehicles to bifuel (CNG and gasoline) over the next 16 months. With this grant, ER&R has already purchased one new bifuel Ford F-150 truck (CNG/gasoline) which was added to our fleet in December 2014.
