As part of Ozinga’s commitment to leave the world a better place than we found it, we’re aiming to expand our use of electric vehicles (EVs) and increase the number public charging stations throughout our communities.
We purchased our first electric vehicle in 2015 with the help of a grant and have added four more in the years since. We also currently operate two charging stations in Mokena, IL and Gary, IN that are open to the public. So far, we’ve avoided 588 kg of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s equivalent to planting 15 trees and letting them grow for ten years!
Moving forward, Vice President of Fleet Management Jeff Bonnema is interested in purchasing more electric and fuel-efficient vehicles.
“Ozinga is committed to the use of alternative-fueled vehicles and equipment in our operations,” Bonnema said. “We will continue to explore new technologies and innovations in the area of alternative fuel so that we can maximize our fleet efficiency while minimizing our carbon footprint. As we continue to grow we will use EVs as one of many viable options for our fleet.”
Ozinga also specializes in compressed natural gas (CNG), offering both fueling and station solutions. From converting your current fleet to developing and maintaining a CNG station, we can help provide you with the alternative fuel solutions you’re looking for.
