SAVANNAH, Ga. - June 13, 2014 - PRLog -- Four years ago, Georgia Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols gathered a few folks together in a room to talk about the benefits of swapping out fuel‐guzzling gas and diesel vehicles for clean, domestically‐ produced fuels like natural gas, propane, electricity and biofuels. Back then, there were only a handful of electric‐ vehicle charging stations in Georgia and almost no natural gas fueling stations. Today the landscape has changed dramatically. As municipal leaders, logistics managers and CFOs look for cost‐saving solutions, clean fuel vehicles are factoring into their decisions. From sanitation trucks and transit vehicles to commuter cars and light trucks, it makes more sense than ever to evaluate alternative fueled vehicles. Utility companies and fueling‐station developers have stepped up to the plate to support vehicle manufacturers. Today, that first small group of pioneers at the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Roadshow has become thousands of supporters.

The Roadshow will be touring Georgia June 17‐26th, 2014,stopping at eight (8) cities around the state. Each half‐ day event combines a live outdoor vehicle showcase followed by a two‐hour classroom‐style seminar featuring short presentations by experts from each of the clean fuels and vehicle manufacturers. Utility companies highlight infrastructure development and finance experts detail the ways that capital equipment can be purchased or leased along with other energy efficiency projects. The information that one would typically travel hundreds of miles to see at a multi‐day convention is compacted into one, very relevant, low‐cost seminar in the local community.
