Low Emission Vehicle Parking

In keeping with its commitment to sustainability, College of the Sequoias, in conjunction with its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Rating System) certified Tulare College Center, has installed parking spaces reserved for Hybrid and Low Emission Vehicles. To park in one of these spaces, a vehicle must display a COS LEV Parking Permit.
To qualify for a decal, the vehicle must be either a hybrid or it must meet the LEED criteria/definition of an LEV which is as follows: "...vehicles that are either classified as Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) by the California Air Resources Board or have achieved a minimum green score of 40 on the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE)."
Please complete the application and return it to COS District Police Dept. located on the Visalia Campus in Blue Oak Building Room 903, email to campuspolice@cos.edu or FAX it to 730-3989.
All submitted applications will be screened against the ACEEE issued list of LEED 2000-2011 Certified Vehicles. The ACEEE list is updated annually and covers vehicles from 2000.
