coolfleets.com was developed to assist commercial, government and municipal fleets in modeling vehicle alternatives to gain a better understanding of both their carbon output and lifecycle costs. Car and truck fleets are significant contributors to greenhouse gases and the selection of vehicles that are more fuel efficient can not only reduce CO2 but can also result in lowering the total costs of fleet operations.
