Clean Energy has reached several supply and maintenance agreements to keep delivering clean burning natural gas to waste operators in the country. The company has signed a multi-year maintenance agreement with the city of Tucson (Arizona), which has over 75 CNG waste and recycling trucks and 50 CNG transit buses that combined use over two million gallons annually.
The city of Philadelphia has started to replace its diesel refuse trucks with CNG trucks, contracting with Clean Energy to retrofit its city garage to make it CNG-compliant. Clean Energy will also design, build, operate and maintain a 43-truck private time-fill CNG station, with room for expansion, at the same location. The city has already received its first two CNG trucks which are temporarily fueling at Clean Energy’s Philadelphia Airport Station. Philadelphia will be consuming an estimated 250,000 gallons of CNG when it reaches 43 trucks in 2021. Clean Energy also has a ten-year maintenance contract for this station.
The city of Spokane Solid Waste Collection department is a designated solid waste hauler, providing residential and commercial garbage, recycling, and yard waste/food scrap collection services. In 2015, the city built a private CNG fueling station and started converting its fleet of 70 refuse trucks. Spokane continues to grow its CNG refuse fleet and currently operates approximately 40 CNG trucks. The city and Clean Energy have agreed to extend their existing comprehensive maintenance services agreement.
Finally, Homewood Disposal Inc., headquartered in Homewood, IL, is adding 13 CNG refuse trucks to its fleet that will fuel with an expected 150,000 gallons of CNG per year. “Our CNG program continues to be a great success story for Homewood Disposal and our customers,” said Kyle Yonkers, Homewood Disposal. “For every diesel truck we replace with CNG, the environmental impact helps our customers with cleaner air and quieter trucks in their neighborhoods.”
