Newport Beach Opens New CNG Station

May 24, 2010

NEWPORT BEACH, CA - The City of Newport Beach, Calif., partnered with Clean Energy, Inc. to install a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in the city. The grand opening was May 19.

Located in the City's General Services Corporation Yard, the station will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to serve public fleets and private vehicles.

Under an agreement with Clean Energy, the City receives a $0.05 (5 cent) royalty fee for every gallon sold at the station, according to a city press release.

The City of Newport Beach recently purchased four CNG refuse collection trucks and will be looking at CNG powered sedans and light trucks as it replace vehicles in the future.

Mayor Keith Curry explained, "Converting to CNG is the right thing to do fiscally and environmentally. This public-private partnership will reduce our city energy costs, generate new revenue, and help clean up our environment. Being energy efficient is an important element of our Fiscal Sustainability Plan."

In addition to the City's CNG vehicles, other companies and agencies with CNG fleets that may use the station include AT&T, Waste Management, Yellow Cab, Airport Shuttles, CR&R, Athens Street Sweeping, and Ware Disposal.
