Meet five major corporations with CNG fleets
Even through CNG is a relatively new mainstream fuel source (it really took off around 2008 when gas prices skyrocketed), big-name companies from coast to coast are already embracing it as a cleaner, more cost-effective fuel source. Here’s a quick look at five large companies with natural gas fleets:
1. Dallas Forth Worth International Airport
The 15th busiest airport in the world currently has a fleet of 350 alternative fuel vehicles. The airport’s shuttle and transit services also run on natural gas.
FexEx added a new CNG fueling station in Oklahoma and is committed to being a leader in the movement toward using more sustainable fuel.
3. LA Metro
The Los Angeles Metro board purchased nearly 300 natural gas buses, citing the fact that the CNG buses run well, the fuel is inexpensive and clean, and the technology is only getting better.
4. San Diego Department of Environmental Services
San Diego, the eighth largest city in the United States, is in the process of switching its entire fleet of refuse and recycling trucks from diesel fuel to CNG. They already have more than a dozen CNG fueling stops that can each fuel two vehicles at a time. Making the fleet greener while saving money were listed as the win-win reasons behind the transition.
UPS is making commitments to slash their greenhouse emissions. This includes making 25% of their yearly vehicle purchased on alternative fuel vehicles and advanced technology.
Rogue Disposal & Recycling is also a huge proponent of CNG-fueled vehicles. In fact, the company is on track to have all 36 of its trucks converted to CNG by 2023. One day, these same trucks — and others in the area — will run on renewable power created naturally from landfill biogas. Learn more about our Closed Loop.
