Clean Cities Webinar Highlights How Idle Reduction Lowers Emissions, Saves Fuel

CHICAGO, Sept. 10, 2020 – Reducing vehicle idling saves fuel and money and cuts harmful emissions. Small changes in idling time can lead to noticeable benefits, including fuel savings and a reduction in pollution and noise.

To highlight benefits and the technologies that enable them, Chicago Area Clean Cities is holding a webinar on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 10 AM. Commercial and government fleet managers, industry professionals and the public are invited to attend.

“Idle reduction is a real fuel saver, and it decreases tailpipe emissions,” said John Walton, chair, Chicago Area Clean Cities. “It also can save your fleet money. It is a hot topic, and we’re inviting fleet managers, government officials, and anyone who manages vehicles to join us. We will provide real-world examples of how to do it.”

Presenters include:

  • Patricia Weikersheimer, coordinating writer/editor, Argonne National Laboratory
  • Josh Wallace, fleet and facilities manager, Lake County Division of Transportation
  • Lynn Stafford, president, Heartland Fleet Solutions
