SEAL BEACH, Calif. -- The Clean Energy Fuels Corp. was awarded $3.6 million to help offset the cost of expanding the Southern California network of natural gas fueling stations with nine new stations.
The grant was awarded jointly by the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).
"These natural gas infrastructure development and vehicle acquisition awards will result in significant air quality benefits as harmful emissions are reduced throughout the South Coast Air Basin," Andrew Littlefair, Clean Energy president and CEO, said in a released statement.
In addition, SCAQMD announced grant awards totaling $7.7 million to assist a group of Clean Energy's customer companies with the purchase of clean-burning natural-gas powered heavy-duty fleet trucks, full-size buses and taxis.
"The grants to Clean Energy will help us add nine new LNG and CNG public and private fuel stations to our existing network, in locations stretching from West Los Angeles, Fontana, Norwalk and Burbank to the Port of Long Beach and the Ontario and Palm Springs international airports," Littlefair said in a released statement.
Littlefair explained that $5.1 million was awarded to an undisclosed Clean Energy customer which will assist in the purchase of a new fleet of 100 LNG Class 8 heavy-duty trucks to transport goods throughout Southern California.
