A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

For future fleet replacements, the college will explore whether to replace fleet vehicles or not and whether to "right size" vehicles. Whenever the decision is made to replace vehicles, we will seek best-in-class fuel-efficient vehicle replacements, whether these are alternatively fueled or not. We do have a number of vehicles that are FlexFuel, enabling them to utilize E85 ethanol as a fuel, however, the sustainability of that option is an open question. We will continue to explore options for appropriate opportunities for alternative fueled vehicles.
