The company put into operation the first-of-its-kind natural gas fueling station with NG Advantage to serve manufacturing facilities and other large, energy-intensive customers who do not have access to the region’s gas pipeline. It is located in Pembroke, N.H., and is expected to provide a minimum of 10 million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) of CNG per year to NG Advantage and fleet vehicles fueling at the station.
“We saw a clear opportunity to serve energy-intensive customers such as hospitals, educational institutions and manufacturing facilities with a cleaner and less-expensive fuel,” said Tom Evslin, Founder and CEO of NG Advantage. “The competitive advantage natural gas fuel brings to our customers is apparent. Our business is growing, and working with Clean Energy ensures we have the most experienced counterpart at all steps of the natural gas fueling process.”
The CNG will be delivered to NG Advantage customers by a “virtual pipeline” consisting of a fleet of high-tech tractor trailers. The volume of fuel supplied by this station is forecasted to be approximately double the volume currently supplied by Clean Energy’s highest-volume CNG station.
By using natural gas, NG Advantage’s customers are expected to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions by up to 26 percent while cutting fuel costs by over 30 percent as compared to propane or oil alternatives.
