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 nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions. The organizations are designed to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector.
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 more than 8.5 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.
