A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:
The University is actively seeking alternative transportation solutions for the fleet as we replace units. There is an effort underway to expand our electric fleet and decrease our gasoline/diesel fleet. We have evaluated different makes, models and types of vehicles last year to see what best could fit our changing university needs. GW has leased 6 new hybrid gas/electric vehicles to replace some of the gas powered units in FY22.
