Sarnia’s first fully electric “Zamboni” is up and running at the Sarnia Arena – or at least it will be when hockey and skating resume.

After deciding to postpone entry into the electric bus market last year, the city purchased its first electric ice-clearing machine because it is quieter to operate, requires less maintenance, and doesn’t release harmful emissions inside the arena, city staff says.

Council endorse a Climate Change Action Plan last month that requires City Hall to consider the purchase of electrified vehicles, when feasible, to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels.
