DTE Energy Adds Transit Connects to Fleet

March 23, 2010

DEARBORN, MI - DTE Energy recently purchased 19 Ford Transit Connects and is exploring ways to integrate the new compact van into its vehicle fleet.

"What interested our team in the Ford Transit Connect was the fuel economy," said Gerard Huvaere, DTE Energy Fleet Operations. "It provides better fuel economy than many of the full-size pickup trucks and vans we have in our fleet."

According to Huvaere, the initial 19 Transit Connects are being used internally to transport materials from warehouses to various locations, to deliver interoffice mail and to move electric meters throughout the system. Some also are being used by the company's facilities maintenance personnel.

In addition to supporting the company's sustainability efforts, the Transit Connects help reduce operating costs, said Huvaere.
