Natural gas features a low, stable price-per-gallon, and strong financial incentives to offset the initial bus purchase or station build. To accelerate the adoption of alternative fuel, the government has created clean fuel programs like the federal Renewable Fuel Standard, California Low Carbon Fuel Standard and Oregon Clean Fuel Program. These programs award clean fuel credits for developers and users of renewable natural gas.
Compared to diesel and even electric, renewable natural gas boasts unrivaled lifecycle, or well to wheel, greenhouse gas emission savings. Further, new engine technology features near-zero nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions. As a result, transitioning your school bus fleet to renewable natural gas positively impacts air quality for both your students and local community.
Want to save time and cost? Install compact time-fill fueling stations onsite where you can fuel your natural gas buses efficiently and in time for the next route! Drivers can simply plug-in after a shift and return the next morning to a fully fueled, ready to go vehicle. And not to mention – these stations can be built compactly without interrupting onsite traffic and are easily expandable.
Drivers appreciate natural gas trucks because of their minimal noise and lack of vibration. Maintenance technicians appreciate that particulate matter filters and DEF have been eliminated. Plus, natural gas is colorless and odorless — something we can all appreciate.
