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

West Chester University installed a CNG compressor refueling center in 1998 and in 2020 more than one quarter of the motor fleet are CNG vehicles. Two EV recharging stations were installed in one of the university's parking structures in 2015 for the use of university employees and students. In 2019 West Chester University applied for and received a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania grant to subsidize the purchase and installation of a Level 2 EV charging station to be dedicated to the university's motorized vehicle fleet. Four Nissan Leafs were purchased in 2019 to replace conventional gasoline sedans and the expectation is that as other conventional gasoline vehicles are retired they will be replaced with all-electric vehicles.
