CCFC has received word from our sister coalition in Alabama that one of their stakeholders has a complete CNG station for sale. They have a Motor Week segment on the station, available to view here: and the sale post is listed on with full specifications and station equipment included. The seller, Virginia Transportation (VT), is available for contact through the "Contact Us" button on their site or you can reach out to Carina at csoriano [at] centralina [dot] org for more information. 


Carina Soriano, CCFC Co-Coordinator, attended the Energy Independence Summit in Washington DC last week on February 10-12th. Centralina was glad to meet with other North Carolina folks from the Triangle Clean Cities Coalition as well as partner NC Clean Energy Technology Center. This annual event is the nation's premier clean transportation policy summit. The Summit provides a unique opportunity for Clean Cities Coalitions and leaders in the clean transportation industry to network and build partnerships with each other, and with key Congressional and Administration policymakers in Washington, DC. This year, our information to congressional leaders focused on stablizing Clean Cities program and clean transportation initiatives funding, continued support for extending alt fuel tax credits and grants such as the EPA Diesel Emission Reduction grant to assist our stakeholders with future fleet building money, technology, and opportunities. Interested? Transportation Energy Partners (TEP) hosts the Summit every year and we're always looking for more stakeholder involvement! Being a Clean Cities stakeholder assists with registration costs too. Contact Carina Soriano at csoriano [at] centralina [dot] org to see how to participate next year! 


On January 27-29th, Carina Soriano, CCFC's Co-Coordinator attended the Coordinator 101 training in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. This national exchange of ideas for consideration was a good chance to network and exchange best practices among new coalitions and coordinators with a few coordinators having prior experience to working with the Clean Cities program or similar industry. A few key efforts arose from the training that CCFC will focus on in 2020.

These include:

  • stakeholder (re)-engagement, ensuring that we are listening to and assisting our stakeholders in their own projects as best as possible while adding to our stakeholder base;
  • better concise and quicker communication about funding and research opportunities available from DOE and other sources;
  • and finally potentially tackling more technical partnership projects, such as hosting or finding partners to host tech trainings, which has been identified as a need within our region.

This experience left Carina fired up and ready to tackle more for the CCFC and our stakeholders. If there is anything we can assist with, or you are interested in the tech trainings, please let us know! We want to know if there is a great enough need to move forward with this idea. Please contact Carina Soriano at csoriano [at] centralina [dot] org for further details.
