How Far We've Come

In its first 20 years Clean Cities has helped to displace 5 billion gallons of petroleum.
Recognizing the breadth of the energy challenges facing our transportation sector, the Energy Department understood that Clean Cities had to draw on resources beyond the federal government. From the beginning, Clean Cities has established relationships with communities and provided them with the tools to move vehicles off petroleum.

$300 million from the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act supported 25 Clean Cities projects that deployed more than 8,000 alternative fuel vehicles and nearly 1,500 fueling and charging stations.
