The company announced it will design, build and operate a CNG fueling station for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA). The deal, valued at $8.1 million, will also include facility modifications to accommodate JTA buses. Located at 100 N Myrtle Ave, Jacksonville, FL, it will be publicly accessible for local fleets and its construction is scheduled to be completed in late 2015.
The new station will support JTA’s conversion of 100 buses from diesel to natural gas. Once fully-deployed, this fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 1 million DGEs of CNG annually which represents a greenhouse gas reduction of approximately 2,318 metric tons. JTA anticipates saving approximately $5.7 million over the life of the agreement by switching to natural gas fuel.
“The CNG fueling facility is a “win-win-win” for the Authority and the Jacksonville community,” said JTA Chief Executive Officer Nathaniel P. Ford Sr. “We will reduce costs, improve the environment and generate opportunities for other fleets to reap the benefits of CNG.”
Clean Energy’s Facility Modification team has also been tapped to retrofit JTA’s two maintenance facilities to accommodate the new CNG fleet.
