Wisconsin Clean Cities is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization managed by Legacy Environmental Services, Inc., an Indiana Certified Women’s Business Enterprise. Established in 1994, Wisconsin Clean Cities is one of the U.S. Department of Energy’s more than 75 Clean Cities coalitions. The organizations support the nation’s energy and economic security by building partnerships to advance affordable domestic transportation fuels, energy efficient mobility systems and other fuel-saving technologies and practices.
The coalitions achieve this in a number of ways, including the advancement of alternative fuels, alternative fuel vehicles and sustainable vehicle technologies such as electric vehicles and their charging infrastructure. The efforts reduce the nation’s dependence on imported oil, improve air quality, support local jobs, drive economic development and promote improved quality of life.
Collectively, Clean Cities coalitions have saved nearly 11 billion gallons of petroleum since the program’s inception in 1993. Public, private and nonprofit entities collaborate with Clean Cities via a membership system to implement sustainable transportation solutions.
Wisconsin Clean Cities lives its mission through education and outreach, training, project management, grant and funding acquisition and the development of stakeholder partnerships.
Wisconsin Clean Cities, which serves the entire state of Wisconsin, is led by Executive Director Lorrie Lisek.
