Renewable Energy Specialist Adding 25 Autogas Vehicles,
Separately Roush Prepares for Alabama School Bus Event
Roush CleanTech has notched another customer for Ford trucks converted to 100% propane autogas operation as Halco Energy, an upstate New York specialist in renewable-based home and residential heating systems, has committed to field 25 propane trucks.
“With grant funding from New York’s Genesee Region Clean Communities, the company is investing $200,000 to deploy 25 propane autogas vehicles,” Roush reports.
The 16 Ford cargo vans and nine Ford pickups equipped with Roush CleanTech propane autogas fuel systems will save Halco some $600,000 over their expected service life, Roush says, adding that Halco aims to transition 75% of its total fleet to autogas over the next four years.
30 Blue Bird Buses for Mobile Schools
Halco is reportedly planning to install a 16,000-gallon propane fueling station, too.
Separately, Roush is gearing up for an event this Thursday, August 21, announcing 30 Blue Bird Vision vehicles with Roush fuel systems for Mobile County Public Schools, Alabama’s largest school system and the first in the state to go with propane.
