History of our Coalition
In July 2001, Maricopa Association of Governments handed over the Clean Cities operation to a group of independent stakeholders representing local industry and government. This group was re-chartered by DOE under the new name, Valley of the Sun Clean Cities Coalition. This new and improved coalition emerged with an innovative vision and strategic plan for cleaner air and a future less dependent on petroleum. Today, the coalition's stakeholders represent more than sixty government, utility, and business organizations.
The VSCCC's stakeholders operate nearly 7,000 alternative fuel vehicles and displace some 51 million gallons of petroleum fuel annually with alternative fuels such as natural gas, biodiesel, propane, ethanol, and electricity. According to a 2010 survey, this represents 10% of the annual consumption of alternative transportation fuel in the U.S.
