A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

MSU began to offer E85 (85% ethanol) and LPG (liquid propane gas) at MSU fueling station; Charging station infrastructure for electric vehicles has been installed; designated parking for alternative fuels vehicles as detailed in mobility credit; in addition, 170 vehicles have been equipped with GPS to facilitate efficient routing and reduced vehicle miles traveled.
