Clean Energy Fuels Corp., announced that the City of Torrance has awarded Clean Energy a new multiyear compressed natural gas (CNG) contract to fuel its fleet of vehicles. The six-year deal, which calls for 550,000 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs), will enable the city to use Clean Energy’s Redeem™ brand of renewable natural gas (RNG), rated up to 70 percent cleaner than diesel and considered the cleanest transportation fuel available. The city made the decision to convert its fleet of buses to RNG as part of its commitment to meeting goals set in their Energy Efficiency Climate Action Plan.
Torrance, which is bordered by some of the highest congested transportation corridors including the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, is deeply committed to ensuring it does its part in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their neighborhoods. The Torrance Transit System recently announced that it had become a 100% Alternative Fuel Bus Fleet.
