As part of the Green Richmond Initiative, the City of Richmond’s Department of Public Utilities and VCC launched a CNG project. The Green Richmond Initiative was launched by the City of Richmond to build on its past efforts and implement new programs to further Mayor Dwight C. Jones’ triple bottom line goals of sustainability. The project has fostered a more efficient use of resources and improved quality of life by reducing the number of refuse trucks required from 37 diesel trucks to 25 CNG trucks, reducing fuel costs, and by lowering emissions. This also helped to create and maintain jobs in the City of Richmond and helped Virginia Clean Cities secure funding for an National Clean Diesel Campaign project.
