NYSERDA partnered with the Clean Communities of Western New York, Genesee Region Clean Communities, Clean Communities of Central New York, Capital District Clean Communities, and the New York City and Lower Hudson Valley Clean Communities organizations to compile and submit one competitive proposal to the DOE for alternative fuel vehicle and infrastructure development funds.  

Funds were awarded for vehicles for utility companies, local and county governments, school districts, universities and other private companies.  In addition, various advanced vehicle technologies were included in the application, such as compressed natural gas (CNG), liquid propane gas (LPG), electric vehicles (EV) and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV), hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles (PHEV).  The vehicles will be deployed throughout the State and will provide data to NYSERDA and the DOE on how these technologies operate in diverse driving and weather conditions.
