Clean Energy has recently unveiled the route plan for the first phase, consisting of 150 outlets, of ‘America’s Natural Gas Highway’, which is in addition to the station building planned for the company’s traditional markets. Major highway segments planned for early opening include, among others, those linking San Diego-Los Angeles-Riverside-Las Vegas; the Texas Triangle (Houston-San Antonio-Dallas/Ft. Worth); Los Angeles-Dallas; Houston-Chicago; Chicago-Atlanta; and a network of fueling sites along major highways in the mid-west region to serve the heavy trucking traffic in the area.
Regarding 2011 achievements, Clean Energy’s president and CEO Andrew J. Littlefair said: “We increased the number of station projects completed during the year by 50% over 2010. These included stations serving transit (7), refuse (18) and airport/taxi/shuttle (28) operations around the country, as well as locations situated to support the needs of local and regional trucking and small fleets (15).”
“During the second half of 2011, Clean Energy received total investment commitments of $450 million, largely to fund substantially more fueling station development going forward, particularly LNG truck fueling stations along America’s Natural Gas Highway,” he added.
