Each year South Shore Clean Cities collects data from stakeholders and produces a coalition report for the U.S. Department of Energy. This report reflects all of the great work Northern Indiana has accomplished with alternative fuels. It also provides opportunities for funding alternative fuel projects and helps promote our coalition and our great state.
Please take a moment to fill out the survey based on your fleet. By doing so, you'll not only help us track all of the great things happening in Northern Indiana, but you will also show how much YOU have done to decrease your carbon footprint.
Awards will be given out at our 2018 Annual Meeting & Awards based on the data that is collected from this survey!

Hobart's Public Works department plans to increase the number of compressed natural gas vehicles in its inventory and build a station on-site to fuel them.
The Board of Public Works and Safety on Wednesday (February 1) approved three grant agreements with Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Committee; one to repower two existing diesel trucks with new CNG engines, one to build a CNG fueling station and one for the alternative fuel itself.
Carl Lisek, with South Shore Clean Cities, said an 80/20 federal grant to build the fueling station would cost the city $135,343 while the grant would pay $541,373.

Soy-based Products Reduce our Footprint
In the last decade, the word "sustainability" has gone from a narrowly used term to one heard in corporate boardrooms, universities and government agencies around the world.
Most major corporations and universities now employ sustainability directors, signaling the issue's priority. In Indiana, we also are working hard to reduce our environmental footprint. The good news is improving our environment also can be a win for our Indiana economy.
