Metro Cab of Grand Rapids Celebrates Commitment to Alternative Fuel at Wednesday Grand Opening Event
June 18, 2012
Clean Energy Coalition will join Metro Cab of Grand Rapids
Wednesday as they celebrate their commitment to a more “green” way to travel and the recent installation of two 1,000-gallon propane tanks.
Metro Cab of Grand Rapids is leading the way in real-world, practical applications of alternative fuels. In the near future, all of Metro Cab’s fleet will incorporate a bi-fuel system, allowing their vehicles to travel the majority of their miles on clean-burning propane and automatically switch to gasoline on exceptionally long trips when propane refueling is not available. The fleet’s propane conversion and equipment for the propane fueling station were funded in part through Clean Energy Coalition and a U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Recovery Act grant.
Wednesday’s press conference and grand opening event will include a discussion of Metro Cab’s conversion to a propane-fueled system and feature speakers from Clean Energy Coalition, ICOM North America, and Ferrellgas.
The press conference and ribbon-cutting ceremony will be followed by a light lunch – and a chance to get “on the green” this summer by winning one of three prizes: a golf outing for four at Centennial Country Club, a set of golf club covers, or a putter cover.
