Clean Energy Awarded $8.1 Million Project; Signs Multiple Fueling Agreements

On Tuesday, Clean Energy announced that it will create a CNG fueling station for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority in Florida, and that it has signed multiple fueling agreements across its nationwide network of natural gas stations. Clean Energy also reported 5,510 additional NGVs began fueling throughout Clean Energy’s nationwide network year-to-date in 2014, which is a 23 percent increase in vehicles fueling compared to the same period in 2013.

In Transit
Clean Energy has been awarded a multi-year deal from the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) to design, build and maintain a CNG station to support JTA’s conversion of 100 buses to operate on natural gas. The deal, valued at $8.1 million, will also include facility modifications to JTA’s two maintenance facilities to accommodate CNG vehicles. Construction is scheduled to be completed in late 2015. Once fully-deployed, this fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 1 million DGEs of CNG annually, and JTA anticipates saving approximately $5.7 million over the life of the agreement by switching to natural gas. The facility will also be publicly accessible for local fleets.

The Morongo Basin Transit Authority (MBTA) in Joshua Tree, California has renewed its facility maintenance contract with Clean Energy. MBTA fuels its fleet of 28 CNG vehicles at MBTA’s two private CNG fueling stations.

In Trucking
Clean Energy continues to support UPS as it adds to its fleet of heavy duty LNG trucks, the largest in North America. Clean Energy opened a Houston Flying J natural gas station in Houston, Texas that will fuel 10 LNG trucks. These tractors are expected to consume approximately 240,000 DGEs of LNG annually under a previously-announced bulk fueling agreement.

The first 11 natural gas trucks in Kroger’s Fred Meyer Stores’ fleet of 40 recently hit the road in Oregon. As previously announced, Clean Energy constructed the private LNG station where this fleet will fuel. Clean Energy also performed the necessary modifications required to bring Fred Meyer’s vehicle maintenance facilities into code-compliance for natural gas trucks.

Kenan Advantage Group (KAG) begins hauling LNG from Clean Energy’s Boron, California plant using 13 LNG trucks. The trucks will deliver fuel to Clean Energy’s fueling stations and other customers. The trucks are part of the additional heavy duty LNG truck deployment KAG previously announced.

Clean Energy recently opened the following truck-friendly stations:

• Albany, Georgia — opened for Raven Transport
• Charlotte, North Carolina — opened for G & P Trucking
• Carlisle, Pennsylvania — opened for GIANT/MARTIN’S
• West Sacramento, California — opened for Chavez Trucking
• Midland, Texas — opened for Dillon Transport

Clean Energy also announced numerous natural gas vehicle deployments throughout its fueling network.
