CCAC to Host 'Odyssey Day' for Alternative Fuel Vehicles

Program is designed to spur awareness of alternative fuel.

The Community College of Allegheny County will partner with the Pittsburgh Region Clean Cities to raise awareness and foster a greater understanding of alternative fuels.

The program will also spur awareness of alternative fuel vehicles and advanced technology vehicles as part of the DOE Clean Cities Program’s Odyssey Day on Oct. 7 at CCAC’s West Hills Center. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

The goals of Odyssey Day are to enhance understanding and enthusiasm regarding alternative fuel vehicles to advance the nation’s economic, environmental and energy security. Local decisions and new practices can contribute to the reduction of petroleum consumption and dependency on foreign oil.

Clean Cities has a network of approximately 90 volunteer coalitions developing both public and private partnerships to promote alternative fuels and advanced vehicles, fuel blends, fuel economy, hybrid vehicles and idle reduction.

CCAC’s West Hills Center offers training on hybrid vehicles as part of its Automotive Technology program. The CCAC Green Institute programs will also be showcased during Odyssey Day.

For more information, call 412-788-7378 or 412-369-3616.

CCAC–West Hills Center is located at 1000 McKee Road, Oakdale.
