Clean Energy receives Sun Metro LNG extension

Posted on June 16, 2011

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. was awarded a three-year contract extension to supply LNG fuel to Sun Metro, the public transit agency serving the City of El Paso, Texas and neighboring New Mexico communities.

Clean Energy has been under contract to provide LNG fuel to Sun Metro since December 2003, with fleet fuel consumption now topping three million gallons annually. The LNG fuel supplied by Clean Energy is converted on site at Sun Metro facilities to compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel, which powers the Sun Metro fleet of 200 transit and paratransit buses.

With 600 employees and an annual budget of more than $60 million, Sun Metro offers fixed-route and paratransit bus services within the County of El Paso, Texas and throughout the City of Sunland Park, N.M. Annually, Sun Metro transit buses log more than 12 million passenger trips and travel 60 million passenger miles.
