NGVAmerica and SW Gas met with the NV NDEP Air Quality Planning Bureau Chief and the lead for Nevada’s VW efforts, Joe Perreira, on July 13th to discuss the benefits of using VW funds for NGVs. They are open to NGVs and understand the “most NOx reduced for funds spent” value proposition that NGVs have.
