The company announced that Parkway School District in Chesterfield, Mo., has purchased a compressor and two fast-fuel CNG dispensers from Clean Energy’s IMW subsidiary to service the district’s fleet of 30 natural gas school buses at its private fueling site. Cost of the CNG station and school buses was offset by a $1.5 million federal highway grant administered by the East-West Gateway Council of Governments.
“Using CNG for our buses contributes to the economic and environmental health of the Parkway School District. To ensure CNG will consistently support our transportation mission, we have chosen Clean Energy to maintain our station equipment,” said Scott Bennett, manager of planning & engineering, Parkway School District.
Moreover, Clean Energy has signed a multi-year repair and maintenance agreement with the City of Ontario, Calif. Its natural gas station features both public-access and private fueling facilities. 48 time-fill posts with 96 fueling points fuel the Ontario-Montclair School District’s fleet of school buses and the city’s refuse truck fleet. The private station also includes four fast-fueling points, where two are available to the public.
Ontario’s fueling station is forecasted to supply approximately 500,000 GGEs of CNG per year. This represents an approximate greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 1,054 metric tons.
