2011 Alternative Fuel Awareness Month in Utah

November 2011 is the 3rd Annual Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Awareness Month. This campaign started in 2009 with a declaration from Governor Herbert supported by Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Provo City, and Ogden City Mayors. The goal was to encourage Utah residents to learn more about alternative energy sources available here in Utah.

Support for AFV Awareness Month grew in 2010 with eight mayors signing on to the Governor's Declaration. This year 47 Mayors from across the state of Utah are joining Governor Herbert and Utah Clean Cities to promoting AFV Awareness Month. Finding cleaner burning, cheaper, domestic fuels is a clear priority for Utahns.

Alternative energy infrastructure has been expanding, allowing fleets and citizens to make the switch to AFV's. Across the state of Utah, cities and towns are using fleets, garbage trucks, police vehicles, and buses that are fueled by cleaner energies. Jordan, Sevier, and Alpine County school districts have CNG buses, which have lower fuel and maintenance costs with the added benefit of quieter, cleaner transportation. Hybrid electric and natural gas powered engines are also gaining traction as governments and citizens look for sustainable energies that cut costs and preserve air quality.

Natural gas is available in Uintah Basin, located in Eastern Utah, providing a local source for the fuel. Local availability allows Utah to expand CNG and LNG infrastructure throughout the state, creating Clean Energy Corridors that are being utilized by trucking and delivery companies as well as the public.

This year Utah Clean Cities will be showcasing leaders of Utah's AFV infrastructure with a month long "AFV Tour." Throughout the month different businesses will have their doors open to the public for fueling questions and general information. See tour location below. Unless otherwise indicated, business representative will be available during normal hours of operation. With 123 different fueling stations in the state of Utah, this is a great opportunity for residents to learn more about Alternative Fuel options and their benefits.

If you have any questions, contact Irene Rizza (801-535-7736) or Robin Erickson (435-652-4721 x138).
