South Dakota Offers Infrastructure Funding - AGAIN!

Recommended Posts

The State of South Dakota has announced more funding for ethanol infrastructure, which now includes underground storage tanks. The funding has successfully placed 60 blender pumps throughout the state, but most remain in the eastern half. The program hopes that will change in the future and that the new category for underground storage tanks will help. The state has a total of $400,000 available for blender pumps, and an additional $300,000 for storage tanks. Applications for both are due by June 30, 2015. For more information, visit: http://bit.ly/17QYEzq.

 

Please share with your contacts in South Dakota, let's make sure there are plenty of applications to utilize the funding.

It always depends on the station and what they have right now and ultimately what the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) will allow. Here is a summary:

 

If you need to add a new tank, typically 10,000 gallons, plan on $110,000 installed. Many stations are going to baffled larger tanks, more products, but only one tank. Cost varies on size.

 

You can buy a blender pump that could offer E10, E15, two midlevel blends and E85 for just over $20,000 each. If you went with just a standard E10 only dispenser, it would likely cost you around $16,000 each.

 

The standalone dispenser is ironically not that much different in price than a blender. The majority of the additional cost is from the E85 components required by UL, not necessarily the blender mechanics. Most are no longer interested in the standalone option, since the ROI is based solely on flex-fuel vehicle owners. If you buy a blender that offers the various options above, everyone from a motorcycle to an FFV can use it and therefore helps pay for the piece of equipment. Much different scenario.
