Green Fleet Winners Recognized at Conference; Alliance Autogas Fleets Receive 5 Awards

Winners of the 2019 Green Fleet Awards were announced in a ceremony just prior to the third annual Sustainable Fleet Technology Conference in early August at the Durham Convention Center in Durham, N.C.

Rankings are based on multiple factors, including fuel emissions, fleet composition, supporting programs, and fleet utilization. Five of the fleets recognized this year were Alliance AutoGas customers. They included DeKalb County, Ga., ranked 10th; Cobb County, Ga., 27th; city of Raleigh, N.C., 33rd; and Prince George’s County, Md., 43rd. The city of Roanoke, Va. received an honorable mention.

Prince George’s County is a large county near Washington, D.C. boasting a population 863,000 and is the second most-populated county in the state. “Our county has put a lot of time and resources into running an efficient, eco-friendly fleet,” said Richard Hilmer, fleet manager. “It’s exciting to be rewarded for those efforts. We consider our county to be a leader in best practices for the fleet community. Being one of the early adapters of autogas, we had the opportunity to share what it could do for other fleets in our area.”

Speakers at the event included Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas, and Ed Hoffman, president of Blossman Services, the technology and distribution partner of Alliance AutoGas. “These types of events look toward the future, focusing on what opportunities we have to improve transportation and to improve emissions,” Weidie said at a mobility solutions panel. “I would like to step back, though, to look at today, as we are not just in the vehicle side of alternative fuel operation. Our company, Alliance AutoGas, provides vehicle conversion systems, installs refueling infrastructure, and delivers fuel supply to fleet customers across 46 states currently.”
