NDEQ Announces Funding for Nebraska Farmers

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) announces that funding is available to Nebraska farmers to replace eligible agricultural irrigation pump diesel engines with electric motors. NDEQ will reimburse 60% 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. 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. Funding for this year’s program is made possible by the Environmental Protection Agency’s State Clean Diesel Grant program.
    The pump engine owner is responsible for the remainder of the project costs (mandatory cost-share). Replacement incentives offered by your electric service provider may be used to pay a portion of the mandatory cost-share. No other federal grant funds may be used to cover any portion of the mandatory cost-share.
    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 in all three project categories.
    Application deadline is 5:00 p.m., December 15, 2017. For more information or to apply for funding visit:
