Mission

Kern County's ag, oil and environmental leaders put differences aside and came together to found Project Clean Air in 1991. Now, 25 years later, we are looking for new leaders to carry on our mission of cleaner air and better health for all. Help support our growing efforts in educating a new generation and delivering innovative projects to meet our community's challenging clean-air goals.

The mission of Project Clean Air is to enhance the community by improving air quality through education and collective action.

San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities Coalition

Since 2002, PCA has served as the umbrella nonprofit for the San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities Coalition (SJVCCC). The U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program advances the nation’s economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to cut petroleum use in transportation. At the national level, the program develops and makes available information, tools, and other unique resources. At the local level, nearly 100 coalitions leverage these resources to create net-works of local stakeholders and provide customized technical assistance to fleets implementing alternative and renewable fuels, idle-reduction measures, fuel economy improvements, and new transportation technologies. This program is designed to encourage the use of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs), hybrid, and electric vehicles and their supporting infrastructure throughout the nation.

The SJVCCC serves 9 counties in California's San Joaquin Valley: San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Mariposa, Madera, Fresno, Tulare, Kings, and Kern.

Since its inception in 1991, the goal of Project Clean Air, Inc. (PCA) has been to work with residents, local businesses and public agencies to seek solutions to improving air quality and educating people about the connection between poor air quality and increased respiratory and heart health problems. We seek to develop cooperative joint ventures that will help businesses and member agencies meet challenges in a cost-effective manner.

PCA is proud of our award winning, groundbreaking programs such as: Kern Auto Recycle, Teach the Teachers, the Clean Air Rally, Advanced Engine Technologies, Alternatives to Ag Burning, and Blue Sky Partners. PCA is also a founding member of the Tree Foundation of Kern. Trees clean the air, while other programs prevent air pollution. We serves 9 counties in California's San Joaquin Valley: San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Mariposa, Madera, Fresno, Tulare, Kings, and Kern.

This program supports SJVNGP clean air goals. The SJVNGP implements our Renewable/Liquefied/Compressed Natural Gas (R/L/CNG) Transportation Fuel Market Development Plan. The Partnership members have identified four categories: Data, Infrastructure, Vehicles & Market, and Workforce. Data will be used to encourage projects in the Valley’s disadvantaged communities, like Shafter. In 2019, the SJVNGP hosted Trucking with Clean Fuels Conferences in the communities of South Central Fresno and Shafter, designated as AB 617 communities. Stakeholders continue to work with fleets to reduce polluting emissions and provide operational cost savings through the replacement of Medium and Heavy Duty Trucks operating on diesel with trucks operating on better-than-zero emission RNG vehicles.
