South Shore Clean Cities Annual Report

Each year, South Shore Clean Cities collects data from stakeholders and produces a coalition report for the U.S. Department of Energy. This report reflects all of the great work Northern Indiana has accomplished with alternative fuels and reducing its environmental footprint. The report also provides opportunities for funding alternative fuel projects and helps promote our coalition and our great state.

Please take a moment to fill out the survey based on your fleet. By doing so, you'll not only help us track all of the great things happening in Northern Indiana, but it also shows how much YOU have done to decrease your carbon footprint.

Please note: the survey includes petroleum reduction methods outside of using alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles. It includes methods like carpooling, telecommuting, low-rolling resistance tires, trailer aerodynamic packages, and switching to more efficient or smaller vehicles.

If you have any questions or comments about this survey, please contact Catherine Yoder at 219-644-3690 or

South Shore Clean Cities reports the following 18 counties across Northern Indiana: Lake, Porter, LaPorte, St. Joseph, Elkhart, Lagrange, Steuben, Newton, Jasper, Starke, Marshall, Kosciusko, Noble, DeKalb, Pulaski, Fulton, Whitley, and Benton County.

Please help South Shore Clean Cities as we put together a snapshot of the amount of petroleum and greenhouse gas emissions Indiana reduced in 2017. Your data will help us reflect to the rest of the U.S. all the activities and initiatives happening in Northern Indiana.

Reports are due by Friday, February 23, 2018

(All responses are confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside the South Shore Clean Cities staff.)

Annual Survey FAQ

How Does It Work?
We collect the data by sending out an online survey or excel spreadsheet to all coalition stakeholders asking for information by category. After completing the survey, you may edit your responses. SSCC staff will be on-hand to answer questions and help out with any part of the survey.

Who Should Participate?
All SSCC members, partners, and stakeholders that have alternative fueled vehicles, advanced technology vehicles, dispense alternative fuel(s), use idle reduction methods or policies, or reduce their vehicle miles traveled (carpooling, public transit, telecommuting, etc.). For example, if you do not have an alternative fueled vehicle, but ride the bus to work twice a week or work from home several times a week, you can report that data.

What Does SSCC Do With The Data?
Once SSCC has collected all the data, it is submitted to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and aggregate numbers are shared with the coalition. It is a deliverable for our funding contract and is a great way for us to show the DOE what is happening in Northern Indiana. Individual data collected from stakeholders will not be shared publicly; only aggregate totals about the entire coalition will be shared. Data collected will also be used for our Annual Meeting & Awards each February and may be featured in our informational materials about the coalition.
