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

The campus fleet which is managed by Facilities Management has supported the purchase of flex fuel vehicles for several years. Staff also manage and assisted in the development of a community NEV ordinance. The ordinance has been in place for several years and supports the use of the NEVs on the campus. Departments such as Postal Services, University Center Production Services staff, and Police and Parking use NEVs as a part of their daily operations. During the summer months, Grounds and Maintenance staff also lease 3 e-gators for use in Summer operations.

The campus has also engaged with Enterprise in the CarShare program which has become popular with our International students. The program currently has two cars in operations and is housed with our campus fleet operations. A UWRF student is employed as an intern of Enterprise and works on marketing and the approval of drivers. The program will continue to grow as the need arises.
