Become a Green Fleet
Did you know?
- According to the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, gas mileage decreases rapidly above 50 MPH. Assuming a gas price of $3.54 per gallon, every 5 MPH over 50 is like paying between 25 and 50 cents more per gallon at the pump, depending on vehicle. For example, driving a Toyota Camry at 75 MPH is like paying $5.19 per gallon.
- Air resistance increases with speed, therefore driving faster requires more fuel, regardless of vehicle type.
The N.C. Solar Center is developing a statewide Green Fleet Certification Program to provide recognition and support to North Carolina fleets petroleum and emission reduction efforts. Enrollment in the Green Fleet program will encompass a variety of benefits including participation in outreach and awareness campaigns, annual recognition at the Mobile CARE awards ceremony and listings on the Center’s website, press releases, and regular mailings/newsletters.
