One of the main objectives of the Tulsa Area Clean Cities Coalition is to make our stakeholders aware of state and federal funding opportunities, grants, and incentives. Our goal is to be an informative resource to assist you in facilitating your alternative fuel projects.

• State of Oklahoma Incentives and Laws – Including tax credits of up to 45% of the incremental cost of AFVs, and up to 75% on fueling infrastructure.
Important notes regarding Oklahoma’s Alternative Fuel Incentives:
- Electric Vehicle Charging equipment must be “metered for fee” to be eligible for the tax credit. However, under Oklahoma Corporation Commission rules, only electric utilities are allowed to sell electricity. Please read the regulations carefully and consult an attorney before planning to utilize this credit for an EV charging project.
- Due to state budget shortfalls, the state tax credits may be amended in the 2018 legislative session. Though Oklahoma State Statute 68-2357.22 indicates these credits are available through 2020, there has been talk of retroactively amending the credit to January 1, 2018. Thus, we will not know the status of the credit until the end of the Oklahoma legislative session on May 31, 2018. Alternative fuel stations should be operational by December 31, 2017 to guarantee access to this credit.
