The Program is managed and administered by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy and Virginia Clean Cities at James Madison University.
Under this large-scale initiative, public and private fleet vehicles in 10 southeast states, Denver and Pittsburgh, will be converted to propane autogas in order to reduce vehicle emissions, displace gasoline consumption and create American jobs.
Specifically, this Program is:
- Converting more than 1,200 public and private fleet vehicles from gasoline to propane autogas
- Implementing more than 30 propane autogas refueling stations throughout the southeast U.S.
- Displacing an estimated 15.7 million gallons of gasoline
- Eliminating an estimated 16,000 tons or more of airborne pollutants
- Creating dozens of jobs
