Capitol Clean Cities of Connecticut
The Capitol Clean Cities of Connecticut works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to reduce petroleum use in transportation.
Craig Peters became involved with Capitol Clean Cities of Connecticut in 1999 and was elected coordinator/treasurer in 2005 due to his commitment to working with public and private entities to reduce dependency on imported oil.
Peters' responsibilities as coordinator are to offer education and outreach and develop a market for alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure in the transportation sector. One of his accomplishments as coordinator has been working with Yellow Cab Taxi Service to be the first taxi company in the country to convert to 70 natural gas taxi cabs and 25 hybrid taxi cabs. As treasurer, Peters manages finances and organizes stakeholder meetings for the organization. He continually works with the state of Connecticut, municipalities, and universities to include alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles in their fleets. Peters is involved in organizing and implementing workshops and presentations to municipalities and organizations throughout the state.
Peters received an award from the Connecticut Fund for the Environment for his courageous business leadership on the Clean Cars Campaign.
