Clean Energy’s CNG Fueling Station Opens to Serve UCLA and Surrounding West LA Community

September 10, 2008

LOS ANGELES – On Aug. 28, Sherry Lewis, associate director, UCLA Transportation, kicked off a ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the University’s new Clean Energy Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station.

Along with UCLA fleet vehicles, the public access CNG station will serve taxicabs, passenger cars, and shuttle vans operating in the West Los Angeles area.

James Harger, Clean Energy senior VP, told dedication ceremony guests, “We are proud to join with UCLA Fleet and Transit Services to open this new station, and we commend the University for its commitment to clean air, both on campus and in the communities surrounding it.”

Jack Powazek, associate vice chancellor, UCLA General Services, added, “This CNG fueling station represents an ongoing partnership between the University and Clean Energy. The company will own, operate, and maintain the facility, along with marketing its services to CNG vehicle owners in our area.”

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) joined with Clean Energy to help make the new UCLA CNG station a reality. Sam Emmersen, MSRC Outreach Coordinator, said, “This a tremendous achievement toward improving air quality.”

With the addition of the UCLA station, Clean Energy now operates 16 public access CNG fueling facilities in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
