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

The university's vehicle fleet must comply with federal and state fleet requirements including the Energy Policy Act of 1992 and 2005 which requires that 75 percent of "covered" University fleet purchases (non-emergency vehicle weighing less than 8,500 pounds) be alternative fuel vehicles as defined by the Act. Most of these vehicles are flex-fueled and the university uses ethanol to fuel a number of them. The university has also purchased 5 propane fueled vehicles (2 of which are flex-fueled and can run on propane, ethanol or gasoline).
