The company announced last December that it was expanding the network of stations that it owns, operates or supplies to over 535 in 42 states in 2014. These include: 69 stations that were constructed and completed during the year, including 18 projects where additional compression capacity was added due to increased demand. A net increase of 74 stations were opened, 25 of which can accommodate heavy-duty trucks.
The City of Kansas City, MO, opened its Clean Energy-branded public natural gas station on Dec. 15, 2014 located at 5300 Municipal Ave., to fuel its fleet of more than 265 light-, medium-, and heavy-duty NGVs with the expectation that this fleet will grow to more than 400. As previously-announced, this fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 1 million GGEs of CNG annually.
Moreover, since Clean Energy’s investment in NG Advantage to bring the benefits of natural gas fuel to large industrial and institutional energy users beyond the nation’s natural gas pipeline, more than 1.5 million GGEs of CNG have been supplied to NG Advantage customers. By switching from fuel oil to natural gas, NG Advantage customers have reduced CO2 emissions by approximately 3,621 metric tons while reducing fuel costs by nearly 40%.
NG Advantage continues to add customers such as New England-based Hard Drives LLC which is the 7th aggregate materials/paving customer to make the switch to natural gas.
