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

UCSC's topography has made the implementation current electric vehicle technology challenging and costly. While we continue to seek & deploy new lithium-ion based battery systems for the campuses many burden/people carrying carts, we have focused on growing our CNG infrastructure to accommodate more heavy-duty CNG vehicles. By concentrating an alternative fuel into a fuel intensive segment of our fleet, we hope to realize significant emissions savings by using our two new CNG refuse trucks and as additional large vehicles are replaced with compressed natural gas versions.
