“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.”
