The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) says it is planning a series of seminars that will exclusively address issues related to natural gas vehicles (NGVs).
The DEP has tailored the program with municipal and commercial fleet operators in mind. The goal is to help these professionals ‘make informed decisions about converting their fleets to compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas.’
The first seminar is scheduled for next Friday, Sept. 14, in Camp Hill, at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg. Additional seminars are planned as follows:
- Sept. 21, Community College of Allegheny County, Pittsburgh;
- Oct. 16, Bayfront Convention Center, Erie;
- Oct. 17, Pennsylvania College of Technology, Williamsport;
- Oct. 24, location TBD, Valley Forge;
- Oct. 30, Lackawanna County Center for Public Safety, Jessup; and
- Nov. 1, Towanda Fire Hall, Bradford County.
‘In addition to informing local governments and businesses about how they can take advantage of an abundant, clean-burning and inexpensive fuel found right here in Pennsylvania, the feedback from these seminars will help us develop our grant program moving forward,’ says DEP Secretary Mike Krancer. ‘Revenue from the impact fees assessed on unconventional wells will be used to promote these sorts of fleet conversions.’
