Our Mission

Greater Rochester Clean Cities is a U.S. Department of Energy designated coalition in the Clean Cities and Communities partnership. We work locally to advance affordable, efficient, and clean transportation fuels; energy efficient mobility systems; and other fuel-saving technologies and practices throughout the 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.
