Alliance AutoGas has added Michael Phillips, a 26-year law enforcement veteran, to its team as a municipal/law enforcement specialist.
Retired from the Iredell County, N.C., sheriff's office, where he served as captain of criminal enforcement, Phillips will help promote autogas as a solution for law enforcement and government fleets' alternative fuel needs.
His duties at Iredell County included director of special projects and grant writing management. One project included the conversion of 30 patrol vehicles to the bi-fuel Prins autogas system. The project received the 2012 NC Mobile Clean Air Renewable Energy (CARE) award from the NC Solar Center. Alliance AutoGas says Phillips has also successfully written and managed more than $2.5 million in grant funding. He has remained active in the alternative energy arena since his retirement.
