Demo Propane Powered Ford F-250

The Region is Breathing Easier

Did you know that South Shore Clean Cities manages the Northwest Indiana Green Fleet program for our local Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), Northwest Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC)? The goal of the program is to significantly improve the environmental performance of business and government vehicle fleets across the region (Lake, Porter, and LaPorte) through diesel retrofits and other strategies. 


Read our latest press release here about how the City of Valparaiso is reducing emissions in their diesel vehicles.
