From waste and recycling trucks to ice resurfacers and snowplows, cities across Canada are beginning to convert a range of municipal works vehicles to zero-emission
Across Canada, thousands of municipal works vehicles hit the roads every day; sweeping, plowing, hauling and grooming. This necessary municipal maintenance can be one of the most costly line items in a city’s budget as well as a source of considerable local emissions.
With a greater number and variety of electric utility and commercial vehicles hitting the market every year, several cities are now trading in parts of their municipal diesel-gas fleet vehicles for cleaner and greener versions.
There are several case studies across Canada with cities taking action to electrify municipal vehicles and realize significant environmental and economic benefit from doing so.
