Electric Vehicles – There are Chevy Bolt and Volt electric vehicles in the motor pool for employees to check out.
Hybrid Vehicles – Washington County has hybrid vehicles throughout the motor pool, Sheriff's Department, and other department fleets.
Clean Diesel – The County uses Ultra Clean Diesel for its diesel vehicles. It is made from the same renewable resources as biodiesel, such as vegetable oils or cooking grease, but uses a different production process.
