Why Support CACC?
We would like to extend an invitation for your organization/company to become a sponsor of Chicago Area Clean Cities.
Chicago Area Clean Cities (CACC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit coalition focused on promoting cleaner energy for transportation and automotive fleets in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. CACC is one of nearly 100 coalitions across the country affiliated with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program, which brings together stakeholders to increase the use of alternative fuel and advanced vehicle technologies, reduce idling, improve fuel economy, and air quality. CACC concentrates its efforts on educating businesses and municipalities in the six-county Chicago area, including Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties.
Nationwide, the Clean Cities program has set an overall goal of displacing 2.5 billion gallons of petroleum per year from the transportation sector by 2020. Clean Cities coalitions like ours must increase the amount of petroleum displaced by 17 percent per year in order to reach this goal.
Your support gives us the resources to hold workshops and seminars, and work with area fleets, community leaders, and citizens, as well as assist in the increase of alternative-fuel vehicles/advanced technologies and fueling/charging infrastructure in the Chicago area. In our region, the coalition is a catalyst for expanding the fuels market and driving business in the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG); Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG); Propane; Electric; Bio-Diesel; and Ethanol and Hydrogen industries. As part of the DOE’s Clean Cities program, we support all fuel types in an effort to reduce petroleum usage and strengthen the local economy.
Your support as a Diamond ($5,000), Platinum ($3,500), Gold ($2,000), Silver ($1,000), or Bronze ($500) level sponsor makes it possible for the organization to strengthen our commitment in meeting our goals and fulfilling our mission and vision.
