Our partners in Tennessee have reduced gasoline and diesel use by
over 150 million gallons since 2003!

May 17, 2021
Dear members, stakeholders, partners, and friends,

Over the past year and a half, a global pandemic has tested our mettle. It hasn't been easy. But against incredible odds, we did it. I'm thrilled to report that our Coalition has emerged from this uncertain period stronger than ever!

ETCleanFuels is growing. In 2020, we added two incredibly talented individuals to our team. Beginning work with us as CCUWDP Interns, Ainsley Kelso and Sarah Roth have proven themselves to be indispensable resources for our ever-growing list of projects. As of this month, both of them have joined our staff full-time!

As of today, Susan Fusaro joins our Coalition full-time as our Fiscal & Membership Coordinator. Having a dedicated membership coordinator on our staff means that our members will receive targeted, personalized attention for their fuels of interest. Susan will utilize her skills and the 20+ years of experience of our team to ensure that each Coalition member receives assistance that suits their singular needs.

We're also almost ready to announce our search for a new DriveElectricTN Coordinator. Keep an eye out in the coming week for a position announcement!

All of the above means that in the span of just over a year, ETCleanFuels will have grown from three to six full-time staff members! We are more ready than ever to assist you in your journey to reduce emissions, save money, and eliminate maintenance headaches via alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies.

Together with our partners at Middle-West Tennessee Clean Fuels, we are Tennessee Clean Fuels: our state's sustainable transportation experts.

Warm regards,
Daniel Siksay, Chief Implementation Officer, ETCleanFuels
Susan Fusaro, Fiscal & Membership Coordinator

Susan's background in project and fiscal management make her a strong fit for managing the ever-growing complexity of our non-profit and for ensuring that our Coalition Members receive the attention they deserve. Susan will be reaching out to current and past members soon to introduce herself and discuss what ETCleanFuels can do for you in 2021 and beyond!

Daniel understands the strengths and skills of our entire team, and will bring those talents to bear for your project and your organization.
Our new DriveElectricTN Coordinator

With the departure of our original DET Coordinator in April 2021, we've been hard at work preparing to push this statewide initiative to the heights it can reach! Keep an eye out for communications in the next week or so to learn more about our search for a new Coordinator to lead this program.
