The plan to expand access to natural gas stations will help meet the environmental goals envisioned in the state’s energy master plan while also encouraging companies and consumers seeking to reduce fuel costs and emissions to consider converting to CNG vehicles. Converting just one refuse truck from diesel to natural gas has an emissions reduction impact equivalent of taking 325 petroleum-fueled cars off the road.
Elizabethtown Gas has long supported the growth of the alternative fuel market. The company first began operating CNG pumps for its fleet at its Green Lane facility in Union County in the mid-1990s. Later this year, the company will complete an expansion of that facility to open those pumps for public access. “Elizabethtown Gas is committed to promoting the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel,” added MacLean.
