Clean Energy CNG Stations Affected by Sandy Now Operating

CNG Tax Credit Renewed: What’s the Impact for Solid Waste?

Clean Energy Fuel Corp. said its 49 compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in the seven states affected by Superstorm Sandy are all back operating.

Some though not all of the facilities lost power, and it restored or the company brought in generators, said Bruce Russell, director of communications for Seal Beach, Calif.-based Clean Energy, in an e-mail. There was some damage that was repaired quickly. Gas supply to the stations from the pipeline continued unabated, he said.

Clean Energy said in a news release that municipalities and other organizations that are fueling at Clean Energy CNG stations include the Atlantic County Utilities Authority; the Atlantic City Jitney Association, which is providing emergency evacuation services; New York /New Jersey Port Authority; South Jersey Gas; Long Island Bus/Transit Authority; New York City Department of Sanitation; New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority; and numerous others throughout the region.

Clean Energy provides fuel to the waste industry as other industries in the affected states of New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania.

 “Reliability in natural gas fueling is the core of our mission at Clean Energy, and we are pleased to be able to support the recovery in the storm-affected areas in this manner,” said Andrew Littlefair, CEO and president of Clean Energy.
