A recent Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) study found that “Fleets can save up to 25% of the total cost of ownership over the life of a vehicle by replacing select cars with plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs)” and “would prevent an average of 67% of each fleet’s modeled vehicle Emissions” (Find the full report here).
The goals of the SW Clean Transportation Project are to:
- Position your municipality in a leadership role in clean transportation.
- Create custom fleet plans that will meet each SW member’s unique needs.
- Take advantage of the 3rd year of NYS grants. There will be several millions of dollars of NYS grant funds available on a first-come, first-served basis. Next program is planned to begin in the fall.
- Combine our collective purchasing power and negotiate discount purchases & leases that can upgrade the fleets – while reducing fuel & maintenance costs by as much as 25 percent.
We’re in the process of creating aggregated EV programs through an Intermunicipal Agreement (IMA), which will dramatically reduce GHG, transportation and maintenance costs for municipal fleets.
We can then leverage that buying power to create discount programs for the residents, businesses, and non-profit institutions in your community.
