2018 NDEQ Clean Diesel Rebates for Diesel Irrigation Engine Replacements

Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 8:44am

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) announces that funding is available to Nebraska farmers to replace eligible agricultural irrigation pump diesel engines with all-electric equipment. The diesel engine may be replaced with a new electric motor or by connecting an existing submersible pump directly to the electric grid. NDEQ will reimburse 60% of the cost of the new electric motor, installation, and/or required electrical infrastructure (including electric service line extension) up to a maximum rebate of $20,000. 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 application and instructions for this rebate program are available from the following web page:
