Antelope Valley (California) Clean Cities program is reaching out beyond city limits with the message on alternative fuels, launching an internet based radio show dedicated to ending oil addiction. Program coordinator Curtis Martin says the content of the one hour weekly show is aimed at national and even international audiences. “Oil addiction is a global problem so the discussions and interviews will be of interest to listeners around the world.” Programs have already gone to air featuring several natural gas vehicle programs, including Ryder System, Inc., operators of North America’s largest heavy-duty natural gas rental fleet.
Curtis says upcoming interviews include fleet operators from throughout North America and experts in the field with practical insights into how to implement natural gas vehicles in fleet and private operations.
The US DOE Clean Cities Coalitions has leveraged government dollars with the private sector at the rate of 25:1, making it one of the US govt’s most successful programs.
Clean Cities Radio airs weekly every Thursday at 11am (PST) and can be found here.
