DISH Rolls Out Fleet of Clean-Burning Propane Autogas Vans to Serve Los Angeles
DISH unveiled 47 of its 200 propane autogas vehicle fleet during an event entitled “Driving Cleaner Solutions for Our Customers and Communities.” The clean-burning ROUSH CleanTech Ford E-250 cargo vans will support residential and commercial customer service through the company’s Hawthorne and South El Monte locations.
Four factors made propane autogas the alternative fuel of choice for DISH: cost savings, national availability of a domestically sourced fuel, on-site fueling benefits and original equipment manufacturer choices that meet service requirements.
“DISH is proud to begin deploying a vehicle fleet in the LA area that emits fewer greenhouse gases and uses a domestically sourced fuel,” said Erik Carlson, executive vice president of service and installation at DISH. “This is just part of our larger propane autogas fleet rollout and we look forward to rolling out more across the country.”
