Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced that it has been awarded a multi-year contract for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), which provides transit services to more than 4 million people across the National Capital Region. The contract covers two transit stations that supply over 580 compressed natural gas (CNG) transit vehicles and represents approximately 6 million Gasoline Gallon Equivalents (GGEs) per year.
Clean Energy also welcomes the passage of two major climate change bills in California last week. Senate Bill 32 and Assembly Bill 197, which will require the state to cut greenhouse gas levels to 40 percent below their 1990 levels by 2030, are both expected to be signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown.
“The passage of these two bills are a testament to the commitment shown by the State of California to sustain its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy. “The use of natural gas transportation fuel by medium and large-size vehicle fleets can play a significant role in helping to achieve the goals laid out in these bills.”
