    Encouraging the use of Alternative Fuels, supporting alternative modes to transportation and sponsoring legislation that improves air quality in the Silicon Valley Region.
  • Training

    Providing training and informational workshops for the use of alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles to AFV operators and technicians.
  • Education

    Promoting the awareness of Clean Fuels and AFVs by hosting workshops, grant-writing assistance and alternative fuel outreach with legislation and funding opportunities.
Membership in the Coalition provides a forum for joint action in working towards the common goals of reducing air pollution, global warming and the importation of petroleum.

The Green Team is introducing the THINK City - an electric vehicle (EV) that gives back. The THINK City is a efficient, safe, modern vehicle that not only produces absolutely zero emissions while driving, but the car itself is designed to be environmentally friendly, with carefully chosen recyclable exterior and interior materials.

THINK City is a two-seat small car with a surprising amount of space.

It features a high seating position with plenty of headroom for even very tall adults, and there’s massive storage capacity inside the hatchback. It has a top-speed of 70 mph, a 100 miles range, and an excellent safety record. THINK City has been CARB certified since it has passed the crash test.


THINK City is a modern urban car—fun to drive, easy to maneuver and park, and economical to operate. And it’s friendly to the environment with zero tailpipe emissions. Equipped with advanced lithium ion batteries made in the U.S., THINK City has a range of 100 miles on a single charge. It’s quiet, clean and convenient, and it requires very little maintenance. With the experience of more than 30 million miles of customer use, THINK City has a proven record of reliability.

The THINK City is an electric car that demands very little of you. In fact, not much more than a mobile phone. Just plug it in at night, and it’s ready to go in the morning.
