The city uses more than 1.4 million gallons of fuel annually, and 70 percent of it qualifies as “gallons of polluting fuels displaced.” This means we use sources that produce less tailpipe emissions - and pollution. For example, we regularly use B-20 diesel, Flex Fuel and CNG. In addition, our 26 hybrid vehicles contribute to displacing polluting fuels.
As a reporting agency to Clean Cities Coalition through the Valley of the Sun Clean Cities Coalition, Scottsdale is a major player in reducing polluting fuels - more than all of Southern California and the separate Los Angeles coalitions combined.
Valley of the Sun Clean Cities Coalition outperformed California cities and all other major metropolitan areas, leading the pack in postings of vehicle emission reduction by the Department of Energy. The coalition also came away from the Clean Cities National Workshop - represented by about 80 coalitions - with six related national awards.
