Sun Metro extends LNG contract with Clean Energy

Posted on December 22, 2008

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has been awarded an 18-month contract extension to continue supplying liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel to Sun Metro, the public transit bus agency serving the City of El Paso, Texas and neighboring New Mexico communities.

The company has been under contract to Sun Metro since December 2003, with fleet fuel consumption now topping 4.6 million gallons of LNG annually.

The LNG is used directly to fuel certain buses as well as converted to compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel, which is used to power the balance of the Sun Metro natural gas fleet that 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.

The agency operates service on more than 50 fixed routes in a region that spans 250 square miles. Annually, Sun Metro transit buses log more than 12 million passenger trips and travel 60 million passenger miles.
