Alternative Fuels Vision Plan

Project Overview (Purpose)

The San Joaquin Council of Governments and its member agencies are developing an Alternative Fuels Vision Plan (AFVP) to conduct a countywide inventory of infrastructure for charging electric vehicles and fueling stations for vehicles powered by other alternative fuels including:

  • CNG (Compressed Natural Gas)
  • LNG (Liquified Natural Gas)
  • LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas)
  • RNG (Renewable Natural Gas)
  • Hydrogen

This plan is intended to address the needs of multiple classes of alternative fuel vehicles and will identify clean fueling infrastructure opportunities along major freight corridors and other regionally significant roadways.
