The Wisconsin Clean Transportation Program was a four-year initiative with the mission of significantly reducing petroleum consumption and emissions in Wisconsin by increasing the use of alternative fuel or advanced technology vehicles and the installation of infrastructure necessary to support them.
In August 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Program competitively awarded nearly $300 million in American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funding to 25 cost-share projects nationwide. The Wisconsin State Energy Office was awarded $15 million, the largest and only project to receive the maximum amount allowable. Partnering with Wisconsin Clean Cities for marketing, outreach and education, the Wisconsin State Energy Office was able to tap into additional resources for the program partners.
Program partners chose which alternative fuel/fuels or advanced technology vehicles would work best in their fleets. Some partners chose just one fuel or technology while others chose various methods to decrease their petroleum consumption.
All equipment in the Wisconsin Clean Transportation Program was manufactured in the United States. Vehicles, vehicle conversions and stations came from a variety of manufacturers such as IMPCO, Cummins, General Motors, ANGI Energy Systems and Odyne Systems, which is located in Wisconsin.
