Volkswagen Settlement Beneficiary Mitigation Plan


Beneficiary Mitigation Plan

DEQ and the office of the Oklahoma Secretary of Energy and Environment (SOEE) submitted the Oklahoma Beneficiary Mitigation Plan (BMP) to Wilmington Trust on June 8, 2018. This submittal follows a public comment period on the proposed BMP which ran from April 24, 2018 to May 24, 2018. Many thoughtful and constructive comments were submitted by stakeholders, and all comments were carefully read and considered by DEQ and SOEE staff before making the decision to finalize the BMP. The proposed BMP was finalized and submitted to Wilmington Trust without changes, with the right reserved to amend the BMP at a later date, as necessary.

All comments received from stakeholders will continue to be referenced during program planning and future stages of Oklahoma's participation in the Volkswagen State Mitigation Trust, as many comments were in regards to specific program design items and other issues not addressed in the BMP.

The submittal of the BMP officially moves DEQ into the program planning and design process for Phase 1 of the mitigation projects. Phase 1 projects will include Alternative Fuel School Buses, Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure, and DERA. Further updates will be posted on the DEQ VW home page.
