The Department will use VW funds from Category 1 and 6 (class 4-8 Trucks) as rebates for the project.The program provides rebates to help purchase new trucks to replace old, high-emitting diesel trucks. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources administers the programs in South Dakota. Total rebate per replacement truck was up to 25% of the purchase price of a new truck with an engine certified to EPA emission stardards, 35% of the purchase price of a new truck with an engine certified to meet CARB's Low-NOx Standards, or 45% of the purchase price of an all-electric truck for Rounds 1-3.
