NEWPORT BEACH, CA – Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ: CLNE) announced it continues to meet the growing demand for renewable natural gas (RNG), a sustainable transportation fuel made from organic waste, with new fueling contracts, infrastructure expansions, and RNG production projects.
The Morongo Basin Transit Authority (MBTA) of California signed an RNG supply agreement for an anticipated 750,000 gallons of RNG to power 24 transit buses.
MBTA General Manager, Cheri Holsclaw, stated that the switch to RNG helps MBTA comply with more stringent air quality standards required by the California Clean Air Act and will not result in any additional cost to the agency. The MBTA has operated an all CNG-powered fleet since 2004.
“We applaud Morongo Basin Transit Authority for adopting sustainable renewable natural gas to power its fleet,” said Chad Lindholm, senior vice president of sales, Clean Energy. “In doing so they are making an immediate and significant carbon reduction and bettering the air quality in the region.”
