The “Northern Stars of the Northeast” is a recognition program for the Northeast Clean Cities’ stakeholders that demonstrate a strong commitment to reducing their petroleum consumption through the implementation of various practices. The program is supported by nine Northeastern Clean Cities Coalitions including Maine Clean Communities, Granite State Clean Cities, Ocean State Clean Cities, Massachusetts Clean Cities, Vermont Clean Cities, Norwich (CT) Clean Cities, Greater New Haven (CT) Clean Cities, Capitol Region (Albany NY) Clean Cities, and Greater Long Island Clean Cities.
In order to be recognized as a Northern Star, a stakeholder fleet must, at a minimum, use an alternative fuel in at least 30% of their fleet’s vehicles. The program started as the “Northern Stars of New England” fleet recognition program as part of the FY12 DOE Clean Cities grant “Removing Barriers, Implementing Policies, and Advancing Alternative Fuel Markets in New England”.
