Illinois' Alternate Fuels Rebate Program provides rebates for those who convert an existing conventional vehicle to an alternate fuel vehicle. The Vehicle Conversion Rebate is equal to 80% of the cost of converting a conventional vehicle to operate using ethanol or biodiesel, with a maximum rebate of $4,000. Any business, local or state government agency, organization, or individual located in Illinois may apply for this rebate. In order to qualify, vehicle conversion must take place in Illinois, and converted vehicles must be registered and operated in Illinois. According to Illinois law, "alternate fuel" means liquid petroleum gas, natural gas, E-85 blend fuel, fuel composed of a minimum 80% ethanol, bio-based methanol, fuels derived from biomass, or electricity. The rebate application must be submitted in the calendar year when the conversion was completed. Applications are reviewed and processed twice per year, at the end of June and December. To request an application for a rebate or to receive additional information regarding the Alternate Fuels Rebate Program, call Darwin Burkhart or Mary Cruse at the Illinois EPA at (217) 524-4343.
