The Chicago Area Clean Cities (CACC) Coalition's member fleets saved more than 25 million gasoline gallon equivalents of petroleum and 225,000 tons of greenhouse-gas emissions in 2015, the group announced.

“That is the equivalent of removing 3,000 tanker trucks of gasoline from roads,” said Samantha Bingham, coordinator of the CACC. “This is an example of the success that our coalition’s member fleets are having by using alternative fuels, hybrids, and advanced technologies, which not only helps to save fuel, but also helps to reduce tailpipe emissions.”

Members of CACC include commercials fleets and municipalities throughout the six-county Chicago area.

The coalition made the announcement today at its annual Green Drives Conference and Expo, where companies from the Chicao area, such as Coca-Cola and Peapod, were featured at the conference as examples of companies supporting alt-fuel vehicles.
