Clean Energy opens natural gas station in Orlando
Clean Energy Fuels has opened its newest natural gas fueling station, located in Orlando, FL.
The new station at Orlando International Airport is open to the public 24/7 and can accommodate a variety of natural gas vehicles ranging in size from passenger cars and airport support vehicles to heavy-duty trucks, the company said in a statement.
The compressed natural gas fueling (CNG) station, under a 20-year lease agreement with the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, joins Clean Energy’s public-access CNG station located at Tampa International Airport in offering natural gas fuel to area fleets looking to reduce their fueling expense and greenhouse gas emissions.
Natural gas fuel costs up to $1.00 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. In addition, nearly all natural gas consumed in North America is produced domestically, Clean Energy said.
