South Shore Clean Cities Hosts Natural Gas Roundtable
Ozinga Bros. adds to LD CNG Fleet
Chicago-based concrete and energy company Ozinga Bros. Inc. has added a second compressed natural gas (CNG) GMC Terrain SUV to its corporate fleet, which already includes more than 100 CNG-powered heavy-duty concrete mixer trucks and many light-duty bi-fuel CNG vehicles.  
Barriers to Alternative Fuels Survey
Let us know what your thoughts and experiences on the adoption of natural gas (CNG & LNG), electric, and propane (LPG) as vehicle fuels.

This survey is part of The Lake Michigan Corridor Alternative Fuel Implementation Initiative; a U.S. Department of Energy grant-funded program through the Gas Technology Institute (GTI). As part of the grant, GTI, Chicago Area Clean Cities (CACC), South Shore Clean Cities (SSCC), and Wisconsin Clean Cities (WCC) are determining barriers to the adoption of alternative fuels.
