Download a press release from the Odyne Corporation announcing New Rochelle’s purchase order for a hybrid election “up-fit.”

As you may recall from previous bulletins, the City is increasingly focused on environmental sustainability. To help reduce both fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, the Council last year appropriated funds to convert one of our sanitation vehicles to hybrid electric. This week, we announced the selection of Odyne Corporation to perform the conversion. If this experiment proves successful and cost-effective, we can consider refitting a larger portion of our fleet.
