A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:
Wesleyan has made the purchase of hybrid or electric vehicles an institutional priority. Unfortunately, appropriate trade vehicles (trucks and vans) are not available as hybrid or electric vehicles at this time, so Wesleyan is purchasing the most fuel-efficient vehicles available. Wesleyan has also been reducing its fleet to reduce carbon emissions.
