Refuel Colorado Fleets

4CORE is assisting vehicle fleets, fuel providers, and auto dealers in La Plata and Montezuma Counties with assessing the viability of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) through Energy Coaching.  Organizing stakeholder meetings, conducting fleet audits, and disseminating information on incentives, tax credits, AFV models and refueling infrastructure, are all components of Energy Coaching.  4CORE is able to customize Energy Coaching services based on the needs of the particular fleet, fuel provider or auto dealer.

“Refuel Colorado Fleets energy coaches will support the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles.  Each community will determine what makes sense for them, be that electric, natural gas, propane, or other vehicle types.  Each of these fuels provides economic and environmental benefits, making this an exciting project.” – Jeff Ackerman, Director, Colorado Energy Office

Refuel Colorado Fleets is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to the Colorado Energy Office.  The project is being led and managed by CLEER: Clean Energy Economy for the Region, a nonprofit based in Carbondale with the mission to “accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy, increase energy independence, and reduce our contribution to climate change”.
