San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities
The San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to save energy and promote the use of domestic fuels and advanced vehicle technologies in transportation.
In 2000, Linda Urata became the coordinator of the San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities coalition. Urata works at Kern Council of Governments in Bakersfield, California. There, she coordinates the Kern Energy Watch program, which is a local government and utility company partnership effort to increase energy efficiency in the public sector.
Since 1992, her professional life has been focused on improving air quality in the San Joaquin Valley. Under Urata's leadership as the executive director for Project Clean Air and as the coordinator for the San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities coalition, these groups have conducted award-winning programs in the transportation, alternate fuels, agriculture, and public education arenas.
A graduate of UCLA, Urata brings experience and enthusiasm for clean fuels and knowledge of nonprofit management to these organizations.
In 2018, Urata was inducted into the Clean Cities Hall of Fame.
