Helping stakeholders reduce over 49 million gallons of gasoline equivalent since 2009.

The Triangle Clean Cities Coalition was founded in 1999 and designated by the US DOE in 2001 to improve air quality and reduce dependence on petroleum by promoting alternative transportation fuels in the Region J area of North Carolina, including Moore, Chatham, Orange, Durham, Wake, Johnston, and Lee counties. By bringing together fleet managers, local and state government officials, fuel and vehicle providers, and interested citizen groups, we are helping move North Carolina towards a more sustainable future.

Triangle Clean Cities staff assists Coalition members to reach their goals by providing grant funding, technical assistance, and networking opportunities.
