Illinois’ Alternate Fuels Rebate Program provides rebates to owners of vehicles operating on ethanol (E-85) or biodiesel at least half of the year. Under the Fuel Cost Differential Rebate, owners of ethanol-powered vehicles will receive an annual rebate of either $450 (for vehicles accruing at least 17,500 per year) or $360 (for vehicles accruing less than 17,500 per year). A formula is used to calculate the rebate amount for biodiesel blends. Applicants for a domestic fuel rebate may receive a rebate each year over a three-year period, provided the necessary documentation for rebate renewal is submitted the following two years to the Illinois EPA prior to the end of the respective calendar year.
Any business, local or state government agency, organization, or individual located in Illinois may apply for this rebate. In order to qualify, vehicles must be registered and operated in Illinois. 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.
