Union Gas launched a fueling station at its London Ontario office located at 109 Commissioners Rd. W. at an event that highlighted the importance of CNG as a better choice for Ontario cities and local economies to fuel fleet and heavy transportation vehicles. The new facility will refuel six trucks in Union Gas’ fleet, which has plans to convert more trucks to CNG over the next few years in an effort to reduce emissions and lower fuel and maintenance costs.
“Increasing CNG penetration in our fleet has many benefits and conversion quickly pays for itself,” said Mike Shannon, vice-president, distribution operations, Union Gas. “But more importantly, CNG has the potential to benefit the broader provincial economy as it looks for economic solutions to reduce carbon, lower emissions and remain competitive.”
“As a city we are committed to tackling climate change and collaborations with companies such as Union Gas will help us achieve our goals,” said London Mayor Matt Brown. “I am so pleased to see Union Gas begin to convert their fleet and lend a hand to London as we work towards becoming a greener city.”
As Ontario implements the Climate Change Action Plan natural gas will provide many opportunities to contribute to a more energy-efficient and prosperous low-carbon economy.
