Clean Energy wins L.A. Metro CNG contract

Posted on August 6, 2013

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (Metro) board approved a 10-year compressed natural gas (CNG) station operation and maintenance contract with Clean Energy for four of Metro’s CNG bus fueling stations.

With this award, Clean Energy will continue to operate and maintain all of the agency’s 10 CNG bus fueling stations as well as an 11th station currently under construction by Clean Energy.

Clean Energy anticipates compressing approximately 15 million gallons of natural gas annually for the next 10 years to serve the four stations named in this contract. Additionally, Clean Energy expects to continue to compress approximately 21 million gallons of CNG annually for Metro’s additional stations.

Metro is expected to use approximately 36 million gasoline-gallons-equivalent of CNG per year, which reduces greenhouse gases by 75,852 metric tons per year, the equivalent of taking 15,660 cars off the road per year.
