SEAL BEACH, CA – Under a modified and extended operating agreement, the City of Burbank, Calif., has opted to expand its compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling partnership with Clean Energy Fuels Corp. and extend it through 2022. As part of the modification, Clean Energy will design, build, and operate a new state-of-the-art CNG time-fill station at the City’s Public Works Yard to support a growing fleet of CNG-powered refuse trucks.
“We are pleased to continue and extend our successful CNG fuel relationship with the City of Burbank, where we have provided reliable, cost-effective, environmentally-friendly fueling services for the last six years,” said James Harger, Clean Energy senior vice president. Clean Energy built Burbank’s first public access CNG station in 2002, and has offered operating and retail fueling services onsite since its opening.
“We look forward to the deployment of even more CNG-powered fleet and service vehicles in the City of Burbank, including more CNG refuse trucks,” Harger said. “This effort will significantly support the City’s efforts to meet its sustainability goals and reduce its carbon footprint, while enhancing both the health and environmental benefits of all its citizens.
