The Town of Brookhaven, N.Y., has moved from compressed natural gas (CNG) to renewable natural gas (RNG) to power its 80 refuse and recycling trucks, according to Clean Energy Fuels Corp. The town has entered into a five-year contract to use company’s Redeem RNG, with an expected volume of 550,000 gasoline gallon equivalents annually.
Clean Energy designed, built, and began operating the natural gas truck fueling station that serves Brookhaven in 2008, when the town began moving away from diesel to compressed natural gas.
The company also announced that three California municipalities have awarded multi-year contracts to Clean Energy. These consist of liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply and maintenance services for both the City of Redlands and the City of San Bernardino, as well as an RNG supply contract for the City of Beverly Hills.
