Clean Energy Backs Natural Gas Vehicle Legislation

cleanenergytruckClean Energy Fuels Corp. is adding its support for the New Alternative Transportation to Give Americans Solutions (NAT GAS) Act recently introduced in Congress. The federal legislation is aimed at increasing the use of natural gas-fueled vehicles.

Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy president and CEO, said the federal government’s support through this legislation can have an impact on how Americans manage their energy resources and reduce their dependence on imported oil. The Seal Beach, California-based company owns and operates two LNG production plants with a combined capacity of 260,000 LNG gallons per day, and an expansion capability up to 340,000 LNG gallons per day.

NAT GAS, or HR 1835, introduced by Congressmen Dan Boren, John Larsen and John Sullivan, promotes the use of natural gas-fueled vehicles and increases the alternative fuel tax credits for natural gas used as a vehicle fuel, for the purchase of natural gas-fueled vehicles, and for the installation of natural gas vehicle refueling properties.

The bi-partisan-sponsored legislation would also encourage original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to produce dedicated natural gas and bi-fuel natural gas vehicles, and require federal government use of natural gas vehicles in a portion of its fleets.

Some companies are adding natural-gas powered vehicles. AT&T recently announced plans to add 8,000 natural gas vehicles. Wal-Mart is testing liquid natural gas-powered big rigs.
