Sustainable Arvada - Fleet
Using alternative fuels helps to reduce the use of fossil fuels, slowing the depletion of this energy source. The City’s alternative fuels are Bio-diesel and Ethanol. Some of the City’s vehicles and equipment are specialized and there is limited production / availability of these items. When there is a choice for alternative fueled vehicle, the policy is to acquire the alternative fuel one.
The Sustain Arvada Plan outlines 8 major areas where the City can reduce pollution and energy consumption. The alternative fuel sources produce fewer amounts of greenhouse gases than the fossil fuel groups.
58% of the City's fleet can utilize alternative fuel sources as of April 2018.
Data is collected from the Faster equipment software utilized by fleet personnel.
