The utility also announced that it is applying for a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to add more natural gas vehicles to its fleet. Moreover, Pennsylvania American Water plans to construct a company-owned fueling station in Scranton that will support up to 36 NGVs in 2014.
“It is very encouraging to see companies like Pennsylvania American Water begin to convert their fleets to CNG,” said Pennsylvania Speaker of the House Sam Smith. “This is exactly the trend we hope to see continuing across the state. More CNG vehicles on the road leads to a greater need for fueling stations, and that ultimately results in less dependence on foreign oil and more jobs in the energy sector here in Pennsylvania.”
