Alt Energy Vehicle Roadshow Hits Florida

Joanna Schroeder

The Alternative Fueled Vehicle Roadshow is driving into Florida. Sponsored by Clean Cities North Florida, Clean Cities Gold Coast, Clean Cities Tampa Bay and Clean Cities Central Florida, the eight city tour begins on September 18, 2012 and ends on September 27, 2012. During the event, attendees will learn about options for fueling vehicles with alternative transportation fuels rather than traditional gasoline or diesel. They will also learn about the economic and sustainable benefits of alternative fuels.

Each three hour event is free and will also showcase options for fleet managers and municipalities to save money when powering their vehicles with fuels such as biofuels, propane, natural gas and electricity. Several vehicles on site will be a hybrid Chevy Volt, bi-fuel Ford Fusion, propane-fueled truck, a compressed natural gas (CNG) school bus, and an all electric Nissan Leaf are only a few of the vehicles being showcased.

Following the showcase, attendees can participate in a two hour roundtable presentation featuring 10 speakers who will cover the technologies more in depth. Several Florida state officials will be participating in various events as well as individuals from the Florida Public Service Commission, Florida Department of Agriculture and the Consumer Services’ Office of energy.
