Please Respond to Fuel Usage Survey to Inform Rulemaking on Alternative Fuel Requirements

The Washington State Legislature directed the Department of Commerce to develop rules regarding the use of alternative fuels – including electricity, biofuels, natural gas, and propane – for local government vehicles, vessels and construction equipment (see RCW 43.19.648).

To support this effort, an initial Advisory Committee comprised of local government associations, utilities, and key technical resources has been formed. Members include representatives from many local government associations, including AWC.

The Committee developed an online survey to gather data and information about fuel usage and vehicles. The data will be used to develop a picture of the amount and types of fuel used by different forms of government throughout the state. This will help the Advisory Committee develop appropriate recommendations about opportunities to expand alternative fuel usage.

We encourage cities to respond to this survey. The survey should be completed by staff who have knowledge of your city’s vehicle fleet. Click here to go to the online survey.
