Land of Enchantment Clean Cities Coalition (LOECC) is a New Mexico not-for-profit, funded entirely by an annual grant from US Department of Energy (DOE). The DOE Clean Cities program advances the nation’s economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, cut petroleum use, and improve efficiency in transportation. The non-petroleum fuels defined by DOE are natural gas, propane, hydrogen, ethanol, and electricity. Other Coalition goals are discussed below.
Incorporated in 1994, LOECC consists of a nine-member board as required by its bylaws. LOECC serves the entire State of NM; with nearly 100 Coalitions nationally, many states have numerous Coalitions. LOECC has the largest territory of all.
