What is a Clean Cities Coalition?

Clean Cities is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) program designed to advance the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local groups that encourage practices that contribute to the reduction of petroleum consumption. The Clean Cities Program carries out this mission through a nationwide network of more than 80 volunteer coalitions which develop public/private partnerships to promote alternative fuels and vehicles, fuel blends, fuel economy, hybrid vehicles, and idle reduction.

Designated in 2006, the Treasure Valley Clean Cities Coalition encourages alternative fuel use in the Treasure Valley.  Clean Cities coalitions are comprised of local stakeholders who agree to do their part to reduce the use of petroleum. Stakeholders can include private businesses, state and federal agencies, utilities, military installations, universities, schools and not-for-profit organizations, as well as individuals.
