Michigan Green Fleets To Showcase Green Vehicles At HFCC

ANN ARBOR — The Clean Energy Coalition’s Green Fleets Program, funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act — better known as the federal stimulus — has brought together a diverse cross-section of Michigan fleets to deploy alternative fuel and advanced vehicles and supporting infrastructure.

This four-year, $40-million project helped fleets deploy more than 500 electric, hybrid, propane, and compressed natural gas vehicles and construct more than 50 alternative fueling stations.

Now, the CEC has created an event to showcase the statewide impact of Michigan Green Fleets. Project partners, such as Wright & Fillipis, Schwan’s Food Services, DTE Energy and Metro Cars, will display vehicles and talk about their experiences with new alternative fuel technologies.

The event will kick off with a briefing on Michigan Green Fleets and its impact across Michigan. A spokesperson from Representative John Dingell’s office will speak as well.

Lunch is sponsored by DTE Energy and will be provided to registered attendees.

The event will take place Thursday, June 13 in the Henry Ford Community College parking lot near the main auto lab, 5101 Evergreen Road in Dearborn. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
