Roughly 250 million registered vehicles travel the streets and highways of this country, and many are part of privately owned corporate fleets. So, when it comes to finding ways to use less petroleum and expand the use of alternative fuels, we and other fleet operators have a major role to play.
The partnership is part of DOE’s Clean Cities program, and its goal is to work with large private fleets to reduce U.S. petroleum use. It provides fleets with specialized resources and expertise to help them incorporate alternative fuels and fuel-saving measures into their operations.
So what does this mean for us? As we continue to leverage our neighborhood network to make more and more electric vehicles and other alternative-fuel vehicles available to the driving public, this is an opportunity to build and expand relationships with others who share our commitment. It’s a chance to compare notes and share best practices around reducing petroleum use with other leading companies, as well as local, state and national government leaders and NGOs.
We’ve joined GE, Coca-Cola, Staples, AT&T, FedEx, PepsiCo, Ryder, OSRAM SYLVANIA, UPS and Verizon as charter members.
