Clean Fuels/Clean Cities

Pima Association of Governments manages Tucson Clean Cities, a voluntary program of the U.S. Department of Energy to advance the nation's economic, environmental and energy security by supporting local actions to reduce the use of petroleum in transportation and promoting the use of alternative-fuel vehicles and fuels, along with building a local refueling infrastructure for these vehicles. Alternative fuels include biodiesel, ethanol (E85), compressed natural gas, propane, hybrid electric, fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.

Tucson Clean Cities, through its Tucson Regional Clean Cities Coalition of over 90 members, works with local businesses and government to guide them through the process necessary to establish the foundation for a viable alternative fuels market.
