Clearwater is also planning to switch its fleet of refuse trucks to methane once the facility is up and running. The conversion will save the city USD 15,000 per truck in fuel costs annually. On the other hand, individuals who use a CNG vehicle can expect to save at least USD 2,000 per year.
According to City Councilman George Cretekos, the station will provide a viable alternative for those who want to be more energy efficient. “Coupled with steps already taken to reduce energy consumption of its buildings and facilities, the City of Clearwater and its new CNG fuelling station are making it easier for its residents to ‘think green’ and help the environment,” he said.
