walk (and drive) the talk

We all know how beneficial it is to our health, environment, and economy to use energy more efficiently. The City of White Rock can demonstrate to its citizens how to be energy conscious with their cars. As vehicles in the City fleet are replaced, only hybrid and electrical vehicles should be purchased; diesel fuel should be switched to biodiesel.

These changes are inevitable anyway, and there is really no reason to wait. The technology already exists; the only impediment to acceptance is attitude and inertia. Our fleet would have a much smaller impact on the environment and cheaper to operate. The greatest investment will simply be the effort of getting used to something different.

The City’s fleet should use electric, hydrid, or biodeisel powered vehicles and equipment whenever possible.
