Clean Energy partners with Mansfield Energy

Posted on May 7, 2013

Clean Energy Fuels Corp., and Mansfield Energy Corp. today announced a strategic partnership to offer customers the most comprehensive solution in the compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel industry.

Sales teams from both companies will offer Clean Energy's natural gas fueling station construction and operational services to current and potential customers. These services will be supported by Mansfield's large-scale fuel supply capabilities, and Gas-2-Gallons fuel management system creating a superior solution for the growing number of fleets making the switch to cleaner, cheaper natural gas.

Mansfield Gas Equipment Systems has ongoing CNG service and operations contracts with 43 locations as well as 20 new CNG sites currently under development in the waste, transit, and municipal fleet sectors. This portfolio will be combined with the 348 CNG and liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations Clean Energy currently owns, operates or supplies, further solidifying Clean Energy's position as the largest provider of natural gas infrastructure for transportation in North America.

Clean Energy's total strategic partnerships to-date represent over 11 billion gallons of gasoline and diesel delivered annually. The company also will become the Western distributor of Mansfield Gas Equipment Systems' FuelMaker, a small scale business and home re-fueling system.

Natural gas fuel costs up to $1.50 less per gallon than gasoline or diesel, depending on local market conditions. The use of natural gas fuel not only reduces operating costs for vehicles, but also reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30% in light-duty vehicles and 23% in medium to heavy-duty vehicles.
