The city of Riverside is a leader in the use of clean-burning natural gas to power its fleet of 250 vehicles, including 60 sedans, 73 pickups, 39 vans and buses, 13 street sweepers, 25 refuse trucks and 39 other heavy-duty trucks. “Riverside has proven time and again how much we value innovation, technology and environmentally responsible solutions,” said Riverside Mayor Ron Loveridge.
Southern California currently has nearly 300 compressed natural gas fuelling stations serving more than 17,000 natural gas-powered vehicles. SoCalGas over the next few years is adding 1,000 new natural gas-powered trucks to its fleet and plans to upgrade and expand all of its 13 company-owned public-access compressed natural gas stations.
