The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG), located in downtown Oklahoma City, is home to the nation’s 48th official U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities program and coalition. ACOG received Clean Cities designation on May 29, 1996 and has the distinction of being the nation’s first regional Clean Cities program. Our program primarily represents the four-county Central Oklahoma metropolitan region, but membership reaches across the state. We have several statewide and multi-state stakeholders in common with our sister program, Tulsa Area Clean Cities, located at the Indian National Council of Governments.
Locally, Central Oklahoma Clean Cities program stakeholders represent more than 45 businesses and government agencies. Nationally, nearly 13,000 Clean Cities stakeholders are dedicated to the Clean Cites goals of reducing petroleum dependence in the transportation sector, improving air quality, expanding domestic alternative fuel use, accelerating deployment of advanced technology vehicles, low-level alternative fuel blends, hybrid vehicles, fuel efficient vehicles, fuel economy policies, and idle reduction technologies and policies.
