Sears Begins Converting Its Fleet of Service Vans to ROUSH CleanTech Propane Autogas
September 27, 2012 — State legislators and Washington dignitaries, including State Representative Katrina Asay and Federal Way Councilmembers Dini Duclos and Linda Kochmar, recognized the environmental commitment of Sears Holdings during the unveiling of 27 new ROUSH CleanTech Ford E-250 cargo vans fueled by propane autogas, to be deployed in the Sears Home Services (SHS) fleet in Seattle for in-home service and repair visits.
“The conversion of 27 of our product repair vans to propane autogas is one of several initiatives we have underway to improve the efficiency of our fleet of 10,000 Home Services vans. If we get the type of efficiencies we expect by converting these vans to ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas we could scale this to all 10,000 service vans,” said Stu Reed, Sears Holdings senior vice president and president, Sears Home Services.
Ferrellgas installed three 1,000-gallon refueling stations at two Sears full-line store parking lots and at one parts and repair facility in Seattle, Federal Way and Lacey at no cost.
