Low Carbon Fuel Infrastructure Investment Initiative

The California Department of General Services (DGS) and Propel Fuels built 36 alternative fuel stations to provide public access to low carbon alternative fuels for more than 600,000 flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) statewide and included a comprehensive development program. This program included identifying and establishing lease agreements for station locations, designing, engineering, and permitting plans for the infrastructure and signage, engaging contractors to perform the build and manage construction, and marketing to the public and fleets to increase adoption of the fuels. These stations distribute alternative fuels including ethanol (E85) for use in FFVs and biodiesel (B20) to the public, as well as government and private fleets.
