Northern Arizona School Districts Adopt Propane-Powered School Buses

LATEST NEWS

Cottonwood, Chino Valley, and Prescott have switched to propane-powered school buses and are leading Northern Arizona in Advanced Fuel usage.

Three school districts in Northern Arizona are now using propane buses to transport children. Propane buses create less pollution, are cheaper to maintain, and do not choke children with toxic fumes.

Mission

We are dedicated to advancing the environmental, energy and economic security of Central and Northern Arizona by advocating and participating in practices that promote clean domestic energy and reduce dependence on conventional petroleum-based fuels.

History

The Maricopa Association of Governments joined the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Program in 1997. The Clean Cities Program was created by the federal Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPACT) to support voluntary efforts by government and business to reduce our country’s dependence on foreign oil. There are now over eighty coalitions nationwide.

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.
