Fleet to be Unveiled Friday with Fueling Demonstration
Roush CleanTech is spreading the word that the Dish Network will unveil 47 propane autogas-fueled vehicles at an event in Hawthorne, Calif. this Friday, March 21 at 11:00am. The Ford E-Series vans will be put into service in Hawthorne and South El Monte.
Roush said at the NTEA Work Truck Show Indianapolis last year that Dish would be deploying 200 vehicles converted to dedicated-propane operation (F&F, March 10, 2013).
In addition to the vans for Los Angeles area, Dish has 22 propane vehicles serving customers in Detroit and is deploying 44 more at two locations in the Atlanta area, says national fleet manager Abe Stephenson.
The Dish Network event in Hawthorne Friday is titled Driving Cleaner Solutions for its Customers and Communities. Dish will display the Roush propane-powered vehicles there, and will conduct a fueling demonstration.
