A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:
Central New Mexico Community College’s Transportation Services Department tries to keep a fine balance between alternative fuel vehicles, their usage, and the cost of maintenance. Not only to be environmentally proactive but fiscally responsible as well. We strive to make the best alternative fuel purchases that we can. New Mexico State also requires government institutions to have a certain percentage of their yearly vehicle purchases to be alternative fuel vehicle as well. The problem that the College faces with alternative fuel vehicles is the availability of these alternative fuels in our local markets. As the local market ventures more into alternative fuels and the availability increases the College will be able to not only continue buying alternative fuel vehicles but use alternative fuels as well (reported by Michelle Peeples, 2013-2014) Update, 2016 (Molly Blumhoefer) 2016 FLEET Update (other sources- Scope 1) email: From: MIRANDA, CECILIA Sent: Thursday, July 14, 2016 2:57 PM To: GARCIA, RUDY Cc: MOFFETT, JAMES Subject: Report Hello Dr. Garcia, Attached please find the data you requested for the sustainability report.

Burning a gallon of E10 produces about 17.68 pounds of CO2 that is emitted from the fossil fuel content. http://www.eia.gov/tools/faqs/faq.cfm?id=307&t=11
