Energy Incentives Program Transportation Projects Information

 ORS 469B provides a tax credit for transportation projects including: transit services, alternative fuel vehicle fleet and alternative fuel vehicle infrastructure projects. The director determines the
allocation of credits between these three transportation projects. Each two-year biennium, ODOE allocates $20 million for transportation-related energy projects.

Alternative fuel vehicle infrastructures include projects such as electric vehicle charging, blender pump and compressed natural gas systems. 

The Alternative fuel vehicle fleet ​credit applies to fleet projects that include the replacement of two or more existing fleet vehicles, with new or converted vehicles that use alternative fuels.

Transit services must offer regular public transportation, but cannot include school bus, charter or intercity passenger rail transportation. These services must also demonstrate an energy savings of at least 10 percent.
