Celebrating 100 Certified Ohio Green Fleets & Class of 2019 Ohio Green Fleets
Clean Fuels Ohio celebrated 100 certified Ohio Green Fleets during the Class of 2019 Ohio Green Fleets Awards Luncheon at the Midwest Green Transportation Forum & Expo on September 19, 2019.
The certification process Clean Fuels Ohio follows aims to demonstrate that there is no singular fleet solution or method to achieve green fleet designation. These fleets have implemented a range of solutions from efficiency technologies to alternative fuels and advanced vehicles. Certified fleets include light, medium, and heavy-duty fleets representing nearly every type of on-road vehicle – from passenger sedans to specialized work trucks, buses, and long-haul semis.
“When the Ohio Green Fleets program was launched in 2008, it was designed to focus on economic benefits, sustainability, and energy security,” said Andrew Conley, Fleet Services Director for Clean Fuels Ohio. “Since then, the program has certified a variety of fleets in Ohio whose investments in efficiency and domestic energy are not only saving money and improving the environment but are also improving our local and national energy security and paving the way for others to join them.”
