Tulsa Area Clean Cities Program
INCOG’s Energy Program hosts the Tulsa Area Clean Cities Coalition, a Department of Energy alternative fuel program. The Clean Cities mission is to reduce the use of petroleum in the transportation sector by utilizing alternative fuels, with a primary emphasis on fleets.
Tulsa Area Clean Cities is a voluntary organization made up of local and state government agencies, private companies, and non-profit organizations. Through our public-private partnerships we help enhance energy security, promote energy independence and advance environmental quality in the state of Oklahoma.
