Clean Energy Fuels extends LNG supply contract with Sun Metro
Clean Energy has been under contract to Sun Metro since December 2003, with fleet fuel consumption now topping 4.6 million liquefied natural gas (LNG) gallons annually. The LNG is used directly to fuel certain buses as well as converted to compressed natural gas fuel, which is used to power the balance of the Sun Metro natural gas bus fleet, which includes 144 natural gas buses, together with six diesel buses. The agency plans to expand the fleet to 227 natural gas buses within 10 years. James Harger, senior vice president of Clean Energy Fuels, said: "We are pleased to continue our supply relationship with Sun Metro, where we have provided reliable, cost-efficient LNG fueling services for five years, ensuring the agency and its riders that their buses roll out daily to meet community transportation needs."
