The Nevada Business Environmental Program has been tasked by the Washoe County Health District Air Quality Management Division to lead a stakeholder group interested in pursuing Clean Cities Coalition designation for Northern Nevada. Participation in the Coalition will give vehicle fleet managers and owners access to information on new alternative fuel vehicles and petroleum reduction technologies; fuel economy improvement strategies; funding opportunities; upcoming regulations and potential compliance strategies; community projects; networking to share common problems and to identify common solutions; and alternative fuel market development.

Mobile sources account for roughly 34% of greenhouse gas emissions in Nevada. The use of alternative fuels greatly reduces harmful emissions and particulate matter and can often be produced domestically.
