The logistics company is expected to use approximately 300,000 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs) of CNG per year, which reduces greenhouse gases by 695 metric tons per year, the equivalent of taking 144 cars off the road per year. “This investment makes positive environmental sense, allowing us to share with our customers our vision for a greener Texas future,” said Don Orr, president and CEO of Central Freight Lines.
Moreover, Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) has inked a 10-year fueling deal with Clean Energy to open a new station as it switches its entire fleet of buses and paratransit vehicles to natural gas. KCATA fleet will begin with 25 CNG buses with an estimated acquisition of 15 additional CNG units each year thereafter until 256 NGVs have been deployed. Within 15 years, KCATA estimates it can displace nearly 2.5 million diesel gallons each year, the equivalent of taking 335 cars off the road per year.
