Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition Fleets Save 20 Million Gallons of Fuel in 2016

The Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition through its programs and projects across Kentucky displaced approximately 20 million gasoline-gallon equivalents (GGEs) and reduced greenhouse-gas emissions by 160,800 tons. These reductions are in large part due to the extensive work of member fleets in the Green Fleets of the Bluegrass Program. KCFC hosted the sixth annual Green Fleets of the Bluegrass Awards Ceremony on Friday, May 12th in Frankfort, KY. The program had the largest participation in program history at 37 fleets. The combined sustainability efforts in 2016 of the participating fleets led to a reduction of gallons of gasoline used by over 11.1 million GGEs and a reduction in greenhouse gas emitted by over 48,000 tons of GHGs.

Green Fleets of the Bluegrass aims to improve the environmental performance of vehicle fleets across Kentucky by reducing petroleum fuel use. Green Fleets of the Bluegrass is a voluntary recognition program of the Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition. The participating fleets in 2016 reduced petroleum use through operating alternative fuel vehicles, preforming preventative maintenance, and focus on anti-idling and efficient driving practices.
