Aqua America to Transition Fleet to CNG

June 06, 2012

BRYN MAWR, PA – Aqua America, Inc., one of the largest U.S.-based, publicly-traded water utilities, announced it will transition portions of its larger vehicle fleet to compressed natural gas (CNG).

Chairman and CEO Nicholas DeBenedictis made the announcement before the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission’s Alternative Fuel Vehicles forum held at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

Aqua Pennsylvania, Inc., the company’s largest subsidiary, has been piloting CNG vehicles for more than a year and has already planned for a slow-fill station at its Springfield Operations Center in Delaware County. Slow-fill stations fuel vehicles over a longer time period, which the company can accommodate because many vehicles are housed at the facility overnight and have longer periods of inactivity during which they can be refueled.

Aqua America serves almost 3 million residents in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Illinois, Texas, New Jersey, Indiana, Florida, Virginia, and Georgia.
