In partnership with VNG.co, a national fueling facility provider, GE Capital Fleet Services is supporting the expansion of natural gas fueling network for light-duty vehicles to encourage fleet owners to use NGVs. Both companies signed an agreement that will allow GE’ customers to take advantage of the increasing accessibility of CNG stations, minimize overall fuel costs and meet financial and environmental objectives.
“We know from our customers that many commercial fleets want to adopt NGVs. The barrier is the cost and availability of fueling stations. Our alliance with VNG is a step toward breaking down this barrier,” said Kristi Webb, CEO of GE Capital Fleet Services. “We’re working with VNG to make the connection between providers driving growth of the refueling infrastructure – in the right markets and locations – and owners who want to grow their CNG fleets.”
VNG offers the benefits of fast-fill CNG fueling within existing retail gasoline stations, eliminating the need for fleets to own and maintain their own stations. GE Capital Fleet Services works with its customers to identify opportunities to utilize NGVs within their fleets, and will work with VNG to pinpoint where additional infrastructure is needed. VNG uses the GE CNG In A Box system for faster, easier deployment of its stations.
“We are extremely pleased to work with GE Capital Fleet Services to make NGVs a smart, cost-effective and simple choice for fleet owners,” said Robert Friedman, Chief Operating Officer of VNG. “This collaboration supports our mission of increasing the availability of convenient fast-fill CNG fueling to provide a high quality experience comparable to liquid fuels for all drivers of light-duty NGVs.”
