Odyne Approved for Voucher Program
Odyne Systems, a leading manufacturer of hybrid systems for medium- and heavy-duty work trucks, has been approved as an eligible vehicle for the recently expanded Drive Clean Chicago program, promoting clean air and better business solutions for Chicago’s fleets. Under the program, nearly $11.3 million has been funded for vouchers for alternative fuel vehicles over 6,001 gross vehicle weight rating and public stations in the city of Chicago as well as Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will counties. Incentives under the program cover 80 percent of the incremental cost of the vehicle.
Drive Clean Chicago aims to accelerate the adoption of advanced vehicle technologies for the commercial truck and taxi sectors. By reducing the cost of a new alternative fuel vehicle or the development of a public alternative fuel station, Chicago fleet owners can begin to see significant economic gains while creating a sustainable future for Chicago’s transportation system. The program is open to fleet owners, leased vehicle operators, manufacturers, vehicle technology vendors and station developers. www.odyne.com
