DOE Announces Clean Cities Recovery Act Funding Recipients

January 8, 2010

On August 26, 2009, Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced the selection of 25 cost-share projects under the Clean Cities program that will be funded with nearly $300 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, designed to speed the transformation of the nation's vehicle fleet, putting more than 9,000 alternative fuel and energy efficient vehicles on the road, and establishing 542 refueling locations across the country. The U.S. Department of Energy also estimates they will help displace approximately 38 million gallons of petroleum per year.
