“We are pleased to partner with ANGA to showcase the benefits of natural gas vehicles, including substantial cost savings over other transportation fuels and significant environmental benefits,” said Jane Lewis-Raymond, senior vice president of Piedmont Natural Gas. “As part of our broader commitment to sustainability, we are collaborating with both private and public sector fleet operators, expanding the number of refueling stations available to NGVs and converting our own fleet of service vehicles to CNG.”
Delegates, media and other convention-goers will be shuttled to two different venues on the natural gas buses. The first two days of the meeting will be held at the Time Warner Cable Arena. The last night, September 6, will be held at Bank of America Stadium, where presumptive presidential nominee Barack Obama is expected to deliver his acceptance speech.
Last week, ANGA also offered 12 CNG-powered shuttle buses for the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. TECO People Gas and Ultimate CNG provided the fuel for the vehicles.
