If you’re considering compressed natural gas (CNG) as a fuel for your fleet, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program can help you assess the economics. Many fleets find CNG to be a cost-effective, clean alternative to gasoline or diesel. But there are significant up-front costs associated with CNG infrastructure and vehicle purchases.
The Clean Cities Vehicle and Infrastructure Cash-Flow Evaluation (VICE) Model helps fleet managers determine whether CNG makes good financial sense for their operations. Fleet managers can find more information in the accompanying Business Case for Compressed Natural Gas in Municipal Fleets.
