Clean Cities

Who We Are

Alamo Area Clean Cities and Communities (AACCC) is a Department of Energy designated coalition dedicated to advancing the nation’s economic, environmental, and energy security by reducing petroleum consumption in transportation. Establishing strong, dependable alternative fuel networks and infrastructure improves economic stability for the United States by decreasing susceptibility to fluctuating petroleum prices. Alternative fuel reliance also improves energy security by tapping into available domestic fuel sources and decreasing dependence on foreign oil entities. Finally, alternative fuels as a whole release drastically fewer greenhouse gas emissions in comparison to conventional petroleum fuels, which helps combat the climate crisis.

AACCC offers reliable resources, technical assistance, and dedicated support for public and private fleet operators interested in alternative fuel vehicles. Our goal is to create a healthier, cleaner future for everyone in and around the San Antonio region.
