A better environment, increased national energy security, reduced dependence on imported oil, more economic opportunities, and the protection of public health through the promotion of alternative fuels are the goals of the Tulsa Area Clean Cities efforts.
Through outreach and education, Tulsa Area Clean Cities promotes a positive public perception of AFVs by highlighting the successes and positive attributes of alternative fuels, educating fleets on alternative fuels, vehicle availability, and refueling options and focusing our grant writing efforts at projects that will have the greatest fuel displacement and air quality benefits.
The objectives of the Clean Cities program are to:
• Facilitate the deployment of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs)
• Support the installation of an alternative fuel refueling infrastructure
• Increase the use of fuel blends (diesel/biodiesel, ethanol/gasoline, and compressed natural gas (CNG)/hydrogen)
• Accelerate sales of hybrid electric vehicles
• Promote informed consumer choice on fuel economy
• Encourage the use of idle reduction technologies for heavy-duty trucks and other vehicles
Additionally, Clean Cities supports the objectives of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and the Energy Policy Act of 1992. Click here to learn more about the national Clean Cities program.
