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

To mitigate fleet impacts, the college has introduced a Toyota Prius into the fleet and replaced a number of larger vans with smaller Toyota vans that yield higher gas mileage. We also have two all electric golf carts. Since 2007, our diesel vehicles use B20 bio-diesel, a mix of 20 percent bio-diesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel fuel. This alternate fuel source reduces engine wear and also produces less carbon monoxide, particulate matter and hydrocarbons.
