The St. Louis Regional Clean Cities Program (STLRCC) is one of nearly 100 coalitions that are part of the U.S. Department of Energy”s Clean Cities initiative working to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, develop regional economic opportunities, and improve air quality. As a non-profit organization, STLRCC provides tools and resources for voluntary, community based programs to reduce consumption of petroleum-based fuels. Through our stakeholder partnerships, STLRCC serves as a resource to promote and create alternative fuels, stations, and vehicles.
Using clean, domestic, alternative fuels will improve our air quality, reduce our dependence on imported oil and improve our economy.
The Laws Behind This Initiative:
Two federal laws include mandates and incentives for the use of clean-fueled vehicles: the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPACT) and the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA). Federal, State and fuel provider fleets are already covered by these mandates. Mandates for the use of alternative fuels by private and municipal fleets in the St. Louis region are not yet effective but may be so in 2001 under the CAAA and 2003 under the EPACT.
Public Outreach and Membership:
Volunteers from the St. Louis Regional Clean Cities Program are available to make presentations in area boardrooms, classrooms, civic groups, and professional organizations. If your group would like to learn more about alternative transportation fuels, please contact Kevin Herdler at the numbers shown below or on our contact page to arrange for a qualified speaker.
If you operate a fleet of vehicles, call us for information on joining our coalition. Joining guarantees you up-to-date information about alternative fuels and will assist other members with similar interests and plans in contacting you for joint projects.
