Clean Cities Coalition
The Western Riverside County Clean Cities Coalition (Coalition) is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Cities program, a voluntary local government/industry partnership. Clean Cities advances the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum consumption in transportation. Clean Cities works to mobilize local stakeholders toward expanding the use of alternative fuels and idle reduction measures, accelerate the deployment of advanced technology vehicles (AFV), and strengthen local AFV refueling infrastructure in nearly 100 communities around the country.
Since 1997, the Western Riverside Council of Governments has taken a leadership role in coordinating the Coalition, by helping local jurisdictions acquire more than 4,500 alternative fuel vehicles, as well as fund numerous Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Propane, and Hydrogen stations. In 2005, the Coalition was recognized with a Clean Air Award by the American Lung Association, followed by a Clean Air Award for Effective Public Outreach by the South Coast Air Quality Management District in 2006. The Coalition was also awarded a Best Coalition Collaboration Award by DOE in 2012 for its work on Plug-In Electric Vehicle planning with the Southern California Association of Governments and the Clean Cities' Coalitions from Los Angeles, Long Beach, and South Bay.
Every three years, Clean Cities Coalitions must participate in a re-designation process. This process allows the DOE to interact with and evaluate the commitment and performance of each coalition. On June 22, 2011, the Coalition passed the re-designation process, and received a commendation for its commitment to the national Clean Cities Program.
