This dataset shows the list of locations in North East Illinois, North West Indiana, and South East Wisconsin where alternative vehicle fuels are available.

Categories: ,

As part of its ongoing effort to improve air quality, the City of Chicago is working with the Chicago Area Clean Cities (CACC) coalition and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus to promote the use of alternative fuel vehicles—vehicles powered by “clean” fuels such as compressed natural gas, E85 (85% ethanol, 15% gasoline), propane and biodiesel—in Chicago area fleets.

Through two grants from the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program, the City and its partners are also creating the infrastructure to support these vehicles by building up to 25 private alternative fueling stations, such as the one that opened in November 2003 at 65th Street and State Street.

This “green” fueling station has a pump for compressed natural gas, solar panels that provide 13% of the station’s electricity and native landscaping to provide habitat for insects and birds. In addition, the station’s site uses a natural stormwater management system that captures rainwater in a shallow, clay-lined ditch containing native plants, where pollutants are removed through natural filtration.

The CACC coalition, of which the City is a coordinator, has secured funding to support additional alternative fuel projects, such as a comprehensive program to educate more than 2,800 fleet operators in the Chicago metropolitan area about alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles, assisting municipal fleets in the acquisition of clean fuel vehicles and building an infrastructure to support clean fuel vehicles.
