Reduced carbon footprint.
For many businesses, operating a fleet is the single largest contributor to their carbon footprint. When a business decides to reduce its carbon output, the fleet managers need to know how to identify which alternative fuel will make the biggest difference.
Reduced dependence on foreign oil.
Most of the world's oil reserves are concentrated in the Middle East. Since most alternative fuels are available in the U.S. from U.S. sources, switching to alternative fuels can limit how much money is transferred offshore to support our domestic energy demands.
The U.S. Department of Energy allows you to search its database of federal and state laws and incentive programs related to alternative-fuel vehicles. Learn more at www.afdc.energy.gov/laws/
