Shipley Energy, Clean Energy Fuels Open CNG Station in Pennsylvania
Shipley Energy announced the opening of York County Pennsylvania’s first public CNG station built in partnership with Clean Energy Fuels. Shipley says the station will allow the company to fuel its own CNG-powered tanker trucks and make the cleaner burning fuel available to the public. The station is conveniently located near to Route 30 and Interstate 83 to help attract CNG fleet vehicles passing through the area, as well as local operators.
“Commercial fleets are rapidly expanding their use of CNG as technology improves since it offers a clean, cost-efficient alternative to diesel and gasoline,” said Matt Sommer, President and COO of Shipley Energy.
Shipley Energy recently added five dedicated CNG Class 8 trucks to its fleet, with plans to add more in the future. Companies such as FedEx and Frito Lay that already use natural gas vehicles and have existing national accounts with Clean Energy will be among the most frequent users of the new station. Prior to Shipley’s installation, the nearest public dispensers to York County were in Lancaster, Carlisle, Harrisburg, and Baltimore.
“Growing our network of stations is a large part of our core business, and partnering with energy providers like Shipley Energy, combines that network with a growing customer base,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, CEO of Clean Energy. “We completed 62 of these types of construction projects last year, and we’re planning on having another strong year in 2017.”
