Western Colorado University requested that AASHE Staff correct a mistake in this reporting field for the reason specified below.Previous Value: 52 None
Explanation: Our transportation manager erroneously placed 52 in the category for gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles. Our campus fleet is currently composed of gasoline fueled vehicles, so this value should be 0.
|Diesel-electric, non-plug-in hybrid||0|
|100 percent electric||0|
|Fueled with compressed natural gas (CNG)||0|
|Fueled with B20 or higher biofuel for more than 4 months of the year||0|
|Fueled with locally produced, low-level (e.g. B5) biofuel for more than 4 months of the year||0|
A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:
Western's fleet belongs to the state of Colorado, so we are limited in some capacities (e.g., biofuel). Western is looking into CNG; however, our county is so small (~14K people), the price of installing a fueling station is cost prohibitive at this time. Currently, the closest stations are 2.5 -3 hours away. Electric vehicles aren't as powerful as we often need in this high-altitude (7700'), cold-climate, such as those for plowing snow, hauling heavy loads uphill, etc.
