Thanks to funding from state, federal and private sources, 75 additional E85 dispensers will be installed in California by Propel Fuels Inc., a West coast-based owner and operator of alternative fueling stations. The California Energy Commission approved a $4 million grant while the DOE is providing $6.9 million in stimulus funding. Propel itself is pitching in $16.2 million in private equity funds. Other partners in the project include the California's Department of General Services, the nation's largest fleet of state-owned vehicles, the East Bay Clean Cities Coalition, Calstart and the Local Conservation Corps of California.
