  • Clean Cities Meeting - Hollywood, Florida

    The mission of Clean Cities is to advance the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local decisions to adopt practices that contribute to the reduction of
    petroleum consumption in the transportation sector.
    Clean Cities is a community-based, voluntary program that provides a framework for local businesses and governments to work together as a coalition to build on the community’s existing Clean Cities’ technologies markets. The Clean Cities framework helps coalitions to focus and coordinate the activities necessary to strengthen the existing markets. It also provides a forum to develop partnerships, investigate opportunities for joint projects, leverage resources, and collaborate on public policy.

    Clean Cities Coordinators lead local geographically-based coalitions composed of local fleets, fuel providers, and decision-makers that focus on a united goal: petroleum reduction. There are 85 active coalitions representing 126 million U.S. citizens in 44 states and DC—approximately 63% of the country's total population. Since its inception in 1993, Clean Cities and its
    stakeholders have displaced more than 1.2 billion gallons of petroleum. The majority of the
    petroleum displaced by Clean Cities has been through alternative fuels. Seventy percent of the
    365 million gallons of petroleum displaced by Clean Cities in 2006 was the result of additional
    AFVs and increased use of alternative fuels in new and existing AFVs.

      From what research I did on Florida, there is virtually NIL for public cng there . . . right?? The US Dept of Energy (Alternative Fuels Data Center) website shows some private sites in about 4 cities across Florida, but NOT a single public cng pump!! Miami, FL only has a single private pump in North Miami . . . . are you kidding, for multi-million population base??!!%%$$##!!??

      What in the world can Clean Cities say they have done for Florida?? Of any state that should be absolutely interested in clean air for all the tourists and critical orange crops, Florida would be wise to lead the nation in CNG efforts. I just don't see it.

      Instead, I found broad support for ethanol and bio-fuels at Florida state and city level.

      What gives??

        We are working hard to change that. Wise Gas will be opening stations soon, it has been a slow and tedious challenge to get through permitting, fire marshalls and politics but we are getting there. When legislation changed back in the early Bush years, the primary support system went out of business causing millions of dollars of equipment to go dormant. We have/are revitalizing the CNG infrastructure. You will see public access points pop up in 2009, but we need all the support we can get. www.wisegasinc.com
