Southern Utah Clean Cities

Robin Erickson

Executive Director
Director Robin Erickson has been the director of the Utah Clean Cities coalition since 2007, becoming the Southern Director and opening an office in St George in 2010. Erickson has been recognized as a leader locally and nationally in the effort to reduce the United States' dependence on petroleum and to reduce mobile pollution.

As a former fleet manager, Erickson recognizes the challenges facing fleet managers to move forward with alternative fuels. In this regard, she provides technical support, real number benefits, vendor resources, potential funding offsets, and teamwork help.




The Ryder/SANBAG project is part of a joint public/private partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, the California Energy Commission, San Bernardino Associated Governments, Southern California Association of Governments, and Ryder. The $38.7 million project includes a total of 202 natural gas vehicles available for lease or rent, three strategically located natural gas compliant maintenance shops in Rancho Dominguez, Orange, and Fontana, and two fueling stations. Ryder took delivery of 70 vehicles in May and is expected to have the balance of the full 202 SANBAG natural gas vehicle order in its fleet by the end of 2011.
