Testimonials

“Partnering with East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition has provided a tremendous asset to the City of Knoxville. They’ve saved us a great amount of time and resources when it comes to looking into different fuel mixes to integrate into our fleet or different options we can provide to the community. It’s a tremendous value to have that trusted partner who’s right here in Knoxville but also interacts with people on a national scale.”

“We began with biodiesel in 2004 and quickly got into electric hybrid and propane buses as well as CNG trucks. With each of these different options, they have been there to help us better understand our options and guide us in the process. Over the years, the clean fuel options in East Tennessee have grown and a lot of that is due to the tireless efforts of all those involved with ETCleanFuels.”
