The Program was 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, were converted to propane autogas in order to reduce vehicle emissions, displace gasoline consumption and create American jobs.
Specifically, this Program:
- Converted nearly 1,200 public and private fleet vehicles from gasoline to propane autogas
- Implemented more than 30 propane autogas refueling stations throughout the southeast U.S.
- Displaced an estimated 1.2 million gallons of gasoline annually
- Eliminated an estimated 6,000 tons or more of carbon dioxide
- Created dozens of jobs
