Atlanta 'Clean Cities' Effort Draws on CNG Expansion

Atlanta-based PS Energy Group has signed a long-term contract with California-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. to expand the use of natural gas for transportation in Georgia as part of the larger Clean Cities Atlanta Petroleum Reduction Program. Both fleet and individual vehicles are expected to benefit from the deal.

Under a 15-year agreement, Clean Energy will develop and operate compressed natural gas (CNG) facilities at PS Energy Group's metropolitan Atlanta fueling stations, or "unattended fuel outlets." Construction is to begin in the second quarter at the PS Energy Group's fueling stations.

Clean Energy will increase the dispensing capacity for CNG at PS Energy's existing Whitehall Street facility in downtown Atlanta and add natural gas fueling facilities at three other locations (East Point, Lithonia and Tucker, GA). By this fall, fleets and individuals using CNG will be able to fill up at any time at any of these locations, Clean Energy said.

PS Energy and Clean Energy are working on part of the $39.5 million Clean Cities Atlanta effort, which is a public-private partnership co-funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Clean Cities initiative supporting clean transportation fuels, vehicles and infrastructure development.
