Welcome to Clean Cities
This coalition works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to promote the use of domestic fuels and advanced vehicle technologies in transportation.
About Clean Cities Coachella Valley
Throughout the country, a network of more than 75 Clean Cities coalitions are working within their communities to implement alternative fuels, fuel-saving technologies and practices, and new mobility choices. These coalitions are comprised of businesses, fuel providers, vehicle fleets, state and local government agencies, and community organizations.
Clean Cities strives to advance the nation’s economic, environmental and energy security by supporting those local coalitions which help to facilitate decisions in the adoption of practices that contribute to the reduction of petroleum consumption.
In April of 1996, the U.S. Department of Energy designated the Clean Cities Coachella Valley Region coalition as a Clean Cities partner. The regional service area in the Coachella Valley is located in Eastern Riverside County and parts of San Bernardino County, with an area of 5,190 square miles and a population of 509,887 (based on 2020 Census estimate).
The mission of Clean Cities Coachella Valley is to encourage the transition to alternative fuels, vehicles, and technologies for the reduction of harmful exhaust emissions, and to contribute to the overall air quality improvement in the region to ensure clean air for future generations.
The primary objective of Clean Cities Coachella Valley is to promote the use of alternative transportation fuels, which will ultimately benefit the region through clean air and energy independence.
Objectives also include working together with stakeholders to provide leadership and guidance to public and private fleets and to implement clean transportation projects by providing opportunities for stakeholders and industry leaders to exchange ideas and information which improves the clean fuel and technology markets. The coalition will also educate the public with reliable information about alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies.
Partnerships will be created with local organizations in both the public and private sectors to adopt alternative and renewable fuels, idle-reduction measures, fuel economy improvements and new transportation technologies as they emerge.
