“Today the airport takes another step toward a brighter future by moving to a fuel that is cleaner and more cost effective,” said Tampa Airport CEO Joe Lopano. “My team has developed a strategy to begin converting our fleet of vehicles immediately, a move that not only will save us money, but enables us to set an example for others to follow and benefit all of Tampa Bay.”
TECO Peoples Gas will supply natural gas for the new public station, which will be open 24 hours a day. The airport authority expects estimated fuel cost savings over $1 million in the first 5 years.
