Clean Cities Coalition
The goal of the WRCOG Clean Cities Coalition (Coaltion) is to reduce the consumption of petroleum fuels and improve air quality in Western Riverside County. The Coalition works to mobilize local stakeholders toward expanding the use of alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) and advanced technology vehicles, promoting local idle reduction measures, and strengthening local AFV fueling infrastructure.
Since 1997, WRCOG has taken a leadership role in coordinating the Coalition, by helping local stakeholders acquire more than 4,500 AFVs, as well as fund numerous Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Propane, Hydrogen, and Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) charging stations. The Coalition has been recognized by the American Lung Association, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as an effective, committed organization, working for better air quality.
The Coalition is part of the national Clean Cities network, administered by the DOE. The DOE provides support, tools, and resources for over 100 individual coalitions around the country.
