Pennsylvania-based Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) has unveiled two new compressed natural gas (CNG) vans as a part of the organization's clean-fleet pilot program.
LVHN says it is focusing on CNG mainly to help reduce operational costs within its fleet. Each of the new vans, which will be used in the organization's engineering department, will result in cost savings of about $1,200 annually. LVHN says the CNG initiative ‘could expand to include more vehicles, depending on the success of the program.’
The vans will access CNG for refueling at Lehigh Gas Corp.'s Exxon station in South Whitehall Township. That facility is located at Route 309 and Walbert Ave.
