Utah is in the national spotlight. Learn more about this year’s grant and incentive programs, and how you can participate.
This year’s community partner of the year is Utah Clean Cities. It’s important to highlight good businesses, community groups, and individuals who are working hard to empower their people and empower the community to do what is right. They work with cities around the state to help them reduce their emissions through fleet management and alternative fuels. Additionally, they help role out idle free ordinances and idle free programs around the state.
Utah Clean Cities is an excellent organization that has spearheaded the work to reduce idling in Utah’s cities. They’re currently working with Zion National Park to reduce emissions by creating a park and ride and implementing electric shuttles.
Utah Clean Cities connects committed groups of stakeholders to positively affect the air quality in the state.
One word I would use to describe Utah Clean Cities is determined!
Utah Clean Cities has helped me see beyond the one solution I have always favored, electricity. There are a lot of additional modes and unique fuels for specific applications that we don’t have an electric solution for right now- such as big trucks or heavy equipment
100% of our business right now is advanced fuels. We have seen where we can go with Utah Clean Cities, and they’ve brought us along to where we are today. We’ve had 700% growth in our company. I encourage all of you to reach out to Utah Clean Cities and use them as a resource to move your company forward not only environmentally, but economically.
We really appreciate the relationship we have with Tammie and Utah Clean Cities and all of the support that you have given us over the years including helping us with the purchase of electric buses. We look forward to continuing our relationship with you.
We met Tammie about 5 years ago and it became clear then, truly, that we were speaking the same language and that our missions aligned. We jumped in and they have been within our network and have been great friends and collaborators ever since.
We take great pride in our alignment with Utah Clean Cities. We were one of the founding members of Utah Clean Cities when it originated and we’ve been actively engaged for the better part of their whole history. We’re really excited to further our relationship and commitment to clean air.
We’re really thankful for Utah Clean Cities and the assistance that they give us in helping us to accomplish our mission to build a better community, not only through the products and services we provide, but also through corporate responsibility, community service and charitable donations.
I don’t think Jordan School District would have developed our natural gas bus fleet, without the help of Utah Clean Cities. They made it available to us in grants that we were able to get and got us started.
Thank you for your willingness to be involved with the clean air caucus and also supporting legislation that promotes clean air infrastructure. It has been very helpful.
About 10 years ago, with the help of Utah Clean Cities, we were able to access federal grants that enabled us to buy our first CNG refuse packers and build out our CNG fueling infrastructure so that we could grow our fleet. Today, nearly 100% of our refuse packer fleet still runs on CNG.
Utah Clean Cities has been instrumental in helping us secure a very large grant to pay for our infrastructure upgrade and to put in twenty electric vehicle chargers. That would not have happened without their help.
