Alliance AutoGas, Blossman Gas support mission of coalition

November 1, 2012 By    

Alliance AutoGas and Blossman Gas were among more than 40 stakeholders to sign a memorandum of understanding supporting goals of the Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition, which the U.S. Department of Energy designated as the 86th Clean Cities coalition in the nation. A celebration was held Oct. 29 at the Baker Exhibit Center Lawn Event Area at the North Carolina Arboretum. The Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition, based in Asheville, N.C., works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders and other stakeholders to reduce petroleum use in transportation. Coalition stakeholders and staff have worked together for eight years to increase the use of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles and to achieve the special designation for the five-county Asheville metropolitan area. Land of Sky administers Buncombe County’s transportation fleet, Mountain Mobility, which has converted 10 passenger vans to propane autogas through Alliance AutoGas. Mountain Mobility saved an estimated $53,000 on fuel costs the first year running the 10 vans on autogas.
