The Multi-Agency Green Fleet Fueling Facilities project is a unique cost-sharing, inter-municipal partnership that serves as a model for alternative fuel dispensing stations by other agencies in the region. The objective of this project was to provide convenient alternative fleet fueling stations at various locations in the Rochester area available to the City of Rochester, Monroe County, and potentially the public to promote the use of alternative fuel vehicles.
By providing convenient and easy accessibility to alternative fuel, such as ethanol (E-85), bio-diesel (B-20), compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and propane, the municipalities will be better able to convert existing conventional fuel fleets to alternative fuel vehicle fleets and reduce mobile source emissions.
The project involved two alternative fuel dispensing stations: the first station is located at the City of Rochester’s Mt. Read Operations Center at 524 Mt. Read Boulevard and replaced the existing conventional fuel storage tanks and dispensers at the site. The second station is new and is located at Monroe County’s Frank E. Van Lare Wastewater Treatment Plant.
