SoCalGas to Feature RNG Technology and CNG Trucks at 50th Annual World Ag Expo
Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) will highlight innovative natural gas technologies at the 50th Annual World Agricultural (Ag) Expo, February 14 – 16, at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, California. Also known as “The Farm Show,” the three-day event is the largest event of its kind.
SoCalGas’ booth will be located at H and Meridian streets at the event and will feature: a live renewable natural gas demonstration showing how dairy waste can be converted into usable energy; a long-haul semi-truck equipped with Cummins-Westport’s new 400 horsepower 11.9L engine shown to reduce harmful emissions by 90 percent; and information about how on-site distributed generation can use agricultural waste or excess heat to replace power from the electric utility.
“Clean, affordable natural gas can help farmers save money and will help California meet its clean air and renewable energy goals,” said Lisa Alexander, SoCalGas’ vice president of customer solutions and communications. “We’re proud to offer affordable, low-cost natural gas to farmers in our service territory, and it’s exciting to see how we can help this very important industry save money, energy, and water by using natural gas.”
