The Tennessee Team for NGVs was started offically in 2011 as a collaboration between the three Tennessee Clean Cities coalitions and the Tennessee Gas Association (TGA). The efforts overarching mission is to enable a transition to much greater usage of cleaner, American natural gas as a transportation fuel in Tennessee. Specific activities include a) managing monthly, open conference calls to discuss activities in Tennessee and how to move them forward, b) planning a "Compelling Case for NGVs" Workshop in Tennessee in 2011, and c) collaborating to place a natural gas conference and expo in Tennessee in 2010 or 2011.

Types of Tax Credits Information

Find information on any federal or state incentives and laws at the first link, or click the links after that to see specific, federal, alt-fuel tax credits that relate to NG (and in several cases other alt fuels, too).

Qualified Vehicles that can be Converted + the Amount of the Tax Credit

The IRS is the entity that maintains both the list of vehicles that can be converted by conversion companies (or "small volume manufacturers" or SMVs as they are referred to by the IRS), and the actual amount of the tax credit for each and every vehicle capable of being converted. The link below is to the main IRS Webpage that heads this part of their site and all the information therein.
  • IRS Website, QAFMV and Heavy Hybrid Vehicles - This page provides a list of the SVMs, and each listed SVM is a link to another page that tells you the model year, vehicle description, type of fuel and tax credit amount that is available (most have references to GVW/GVWR as well).

The NGToolkit picture The Natural Gas Toolkit, or is a website with information to help those just getting started in learning about NG as a transportation fuel. The website first and foremost features a Calculator that is a pre-setup spreadsheet for calculating ROI on CNG vehicle investments.
Other features include some online resources, and a rare find: Call-a-Fleet. Call-a-Fleet gives you contacts for other NG fleet managers from all over the U.S. that have agreed to receive phone calls from fleet managers that are learing about NG, to help them answer any related fleet or fuel questions. Get some of your questions together, and give one of them a call -- and tell them you are calling them from finding them on this website!

Southeast U.S. NGV Corridor Conference Calls

Started in 2010, Bob Strickland of Alagasco and others began these every-two-weeks conference calls that discuss natural gas actions and opportunities across the entire southeastern U.S. These are very informative calls, and there is usually at least one speaker discussing equipment, new stations, and the like.
  • Email Bob Strickland if you'd like to be added to the call email reminder list!
  • Call-in information:  phone - 877-544-8688; code - 7475421#

Home Refueling Information

The natural gas appliance company Fuelmaker was purchased by Impco a couple of years ago, and you can find information on their Website about the "Phill" home refueling appliance. This is a type of time-fill system that compresses the fuel directly into the vehicle. Overnight refueling is easy and the customer gets a complete fill for his or her daily driving needs.
