OAK CREEK, WI - GO Riteway is now operating a total of 21 ROUSH CleanTech Ford E-350 vans fueled by propane autogas at the General Mitchell International Airport in Wisconsin. GO Riteway’s President, Ronald Bast, announced during a ceremony on Nov. 8 that the company is moving toward a more environmentally friendly business model through the use of domestically produced propane autogas, which now fuels 40 percent of the company's fleet.
The event, held at GO Riteway’s new offices in Oak Creek, Wis., included a tour of the company’s new ROUSH CleanTech fleet vehicles and on-site propane autogas fueling facility, which was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.
“When we were exploring alternative fuel options, ROUSH CleanTech caught our attention due to their experience in the propane autogas field,” said Bast. “ROUSH CleanTech’s highly respected reputation, expertise and performance are why we chose to partner with them.”
The new vehicles will annually consume approximately 36.8 million gallons of clean propane autogas, and many will be displacing fuels with higher emissions like gasoline and diesel, according to the Propane Education & Research Council.
