The Clean Cities’ National Clean Fleets Partnership establishes strategic alliances with large private fleets to help them explore and adopt alternative fuels and fuel economy measures to reduce petroleum use. TWC will be provided with technical services, data and assistance to develop a petroleum reduction plan, and be given access to tools and resources to navigate alternative fuels and advanced vehicles. TWC will also have access to information exchange among other Fortune 500 companies that are Clean Fleet Partners.
TWC, in recent years, has taken action to utilize more fuel efficient vehicles. TWC is replacing service vehicles with Ford Transit and Ford Transit Connect vehicles that are capable of achieving a 40 percent fuel performance improvement over replaced fleet. The Ford Fusion Hybrid has been made the standard TWC passenger car, which brings a 33 percent increase in fuel efficiency. The company has also doubled the number of Electric Power Take Off devices within its fleet of bucket trucks, which reduces idle time as it allows the vehicle to be shut down when the bucket is in use.
