Local Fleet Petroleum Reduction

Demonstrate increase in petroleum reduction by local fleets by 15% year-over-year.


The national Clean Cities program, part of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), has an overall goal of saving 2.5 billion gallons of petroleum per year by 2020. In order to meet this goal, DOE has tasked each local coalition with decreasing their petroleum consumption by 15 percent annually.  Clean Cities was created out of the Energy Policy Act to provide technical, informational, and financial resources to fleets that adopt alternative fuels and vehicles. 

For calendar year 2017, the region documented 22.93 million gallons of petroleum reduced, which means that in the next report (which will reflect calendar year 2018) the region will need to document 26.37 million gallons of petroleum replaced.
