WHO WE ARE

Greater Rochester Clean Cities is a U.S. Department of Energy sponsored program designed to encourage the use of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) and their underlying support systems throughout the Greater Rochester area

Our organization is built on the premise that we can change our communities for the better through cooperation and voluntary partnerships, working to reduce our reliance on imported oil and improve air quality.

Through GRCC, we develop public/private partnerships to promote alternative fuels and vehicles, fuel blends, fuel economy, hybrid vehicles, and idle reduction.

WHAT ARE ALTERNATIVE FUELS?

Alternative fuels are options to gasoline or diesel including propane, natural gas, electricity, hydrogen, methanol, biodiesel, and ethanol.

WHY ALTERNATIVE FUELS?

Clean Cities coalitions foster the economic, environmental, and energy security of the United States by working locally to advance affordable, domestic transportation fuels, energy efficient mobility systems, and other fuel-saving technologies and practices.

The United States consumes approximately 20 million barrels of petroleum per day, about three-fourths of which is used for transportation. Transportation also has a significant economic impact on American businesses and families, accounting for nearly one-sixth of the average household’s expenses (second only to housing). Improving efficiency and reducing costs in this sector can thereby make a notable impact on our economy. Increasing the use of domestic alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies can also reduce the emissions that impact our air quality and public health.
