The ACUA is working to transition its fleet of collection vehicles to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and plans to bring a CNG Fueling Station (which would be accessible to other public fleets) to our Egg Harbor Twp. location in 2010.
If you are a public or private fleet operator, interested in learning more about CNG you may be interested in the following workshop sponsored by the New Jersey Clean Cities Coalition held November 11 in Plymouth Meeting, PA:
"The Compelling Case for Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV)". This will be a comprehensive full-day workshop for public and private fleet operators, Clean-Air/Clean-Transportation policymakers, and other interested parties. This event, held in conjunction with the Greater Philadelphia Clean Cities Coalition, The Clean Vehicle Education Foundation, and others, will be held on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00p.m at the Plymouth Country Club in Plymouth Meeting, PA.
