CCW Awarded Washington Statewide Master Contract
Riverside, CA – Complete Coach Works (CCW) was awarded the Electric Heavy-Duty Vehicles Statewide Master Contract #109214 by the State of Washington’s Department of Enterprise Services. CCW’s Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) buses will be listed under the Electric Up-Fit Category.
The ZEPS electric drive system allows for the conversion of any pre-owned diesel or CNG bus to an all-electric green transit bus. CCW uses advanced lithium ion battery technology to power the buses. ZEPS is the ultimate standard in sustainability by reusing an existing chassis that agencies are already familiar with. Not only does CCW provide a product that makes for a seamless transition for transit agencies into an electric fleet, the ZEPS product also lessens environmental impact by reducing landfill pollution by nearly 10 tons of raw material per bus. Currently, ZEPS buses are deployed coast to coast and have surpassed the million-mile marker in service.
Washington State takes pride in having the largest hydro plant in the United States. More than 70 percent of the electricity made in Washington State is produced by hydroelectric facilities, therefore creating the perfect environment for the deployment of electric vehicles. By utilizing electric vehicles, the State looks to drive down operating costs while doing its part to reduce its carbon footprint.
Ryne Shetterly, ZEPS Sales Manager, stated, “We are all very honored and excited to provide eco-friendly and reliable transportation solutions to the State of Washington by helping them make that next step toward a greener fleet.”
