East Tennessee Clean Fuels serves the 48 counties in the eastern half of the state. We work closely with Middle-West Tennessee Clean Fuels to provide services to our partners in these counties and beyond.
Clean Cities coalitions that desire official recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy must complete a stringent process, gather partner support, and complete a detailed program plan. On October 12, 2004, East Tennessee Clean Fuels became an official, designated Clean Cities coalition. The process of designation took two years and was supported by many partners along the way. Over thirty partners attended the designation event and signed the supporting MOU along with the Department of Energy.
