The Greater New Haven Clean Cities Coalition, Inc. (GNHCCC), together with over 30 partner organizations will develop and implement a state-wide, fuel-neutral effort that will deploy 269 alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) through incremental funding and provide fueling capability for 21 additional fleet vehicles and infrastructure necessary to directly support the vehicle deployments as part of the Connecticut Clean Cities Future Fuels Project. The project will increase the utilization of alternative fuels; strengthen the availability of alternative fuels for fleets and commercial consumers along major corridors in the state; raise awareness and foster greater understanding of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies through a targeted outreach and education effort; create and retain jobs; reduce dependence on foreign oil; reduce harmful emissions; and contribute to a sustainable alternative fuels market.

The project will utilize $13,195,000 in federal funding through the US Department of Energy and $16,609810.25 in non-federal funds which will be contributed by project partners to offset the incremental cost of providing: 5 public access and 5 private fleet access fueling stations and deploying 267 compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid natural gas (LNG) vehicles and 2 light duty hybrid vehicles through project funding; providing fuel for 6 hydrogen powered transit buses; 8 light-duty CNG vehicles; and, 7 light-duty electric vehicles (EVs) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in the state of Connecticut (planned purchase of first commercially available EV or PHEV).

The following represents the alternative fuel project installations occurring across the state as part of the Connecticut Clean Cities Future Fuels Project:
