The second agreement states that Clean Energy is ready to build, own and operate a public-access CNG station located at the critical midway point between Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo., necessary to complete the I-70 CNG corridor between these two cities. The fueling site, which will be located at 1900 Lake Ridgeway Dr., Columbia, MO 65202, is scheduled to serve Columbia’s fleet of 30 NGVs which consists of refuse trucks, transit buses and medium-duty vehicles in addition to DART Trucking’s fleet of heavy-duty vehicles.
Finally, the fuel provider is constructing and will own and operate another public-access CNG station to serve the Lee’s Summit School District’s fleet of 140 buses, which is believed to be the largest school bus fleet conversion to natural gas in the nation. Projected fuel and maintenance cost savings to the district is expected to be approximately $11 million over the next ten years, much of which is expected to be used to purchase technology and related equipment for the children of Lee’s Summit
