Clean Energy Fuels Corp. says it recently inked a number of new supply deals for renewable natural gas (RNG) fleet fuel, as well as signed several contracts for natural gas refueling operations, maintenance and construction.
“As fleet operators of large vehicles look at the entire alternative fuel landscape, RNG continues to rise to the top as they consider carbon reduction, ease in fueling, reliability and cost,” says Chad Lindholm, Clean Energy’s senior vice president for sales. “We continue to add new customers across all transportation sectors as they realize the benefits of RNG fueling.”
