Moreover, Verizon has recently added 13 CNG Ford cargo vans to its Florida’s fleet and some of these vehicles will be on display at the opening, as examples of the various types of units that can use natural gas for fuel and help preserve the environment. “We are very happy Florida is playing a role in our national efforts to cut down on carbon dioxide emissions, and we view the addition of these vans as a good start down the road to a much more energy-efficient fleet,” said Jeanmarie Milla, Verizon’s Florida region president for operations, according to the company’s press release.
