Clean Energy wins Atlanta CNG contract

Posted on March 29, 2011

Clean Energy signed a 15-year agreement to develop and operate compressed natural gas (CNG) facilities at PS Energy Group's metro Atlanta fueling stations or Unattended Fuel Outlets (UFO).

Clean Energy will increase dispensing capacity of CNG at the Whitehall Street site in downtown Atlanta and add CNG facilities at the East Point, Lithonia and Tucker, Ga. locations. By fall 2011, fleets and individuals with CNG vehicles will be able to fill up at any time at any of these computerized fueling stations.

This project is part of the $39.5 million Clean Cities Atlanta Petroleum Reduction Program, a local public/private partnership co-funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Clean Cities Initiative to support clean fuels, vehicles and infrastructure development to improve fuel economy and air quality in metro Atlanta.

Clean Cities supports local decisions to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector through the use of alternative fuels, advanced technology vehicles and fuel economy measures.
