    I really hope CLNE has someone pushing sales to the school bus districts. An article in my local paper this morning (Richmond, VA) where it mentions the just four local districts and together they need to purchase about 400 buses in the next couple of years as they have not been replacing their fleet as they should have been. That's in an area of about 1 million people. If you multiply that by 300 times for the US population that would be 120,000 buses.

    Hopefully good however my fear is they are so bad that they are hoping everyone will be headed home by the time earnings are announced. When they are good everyone wants to trumpet them, when bad try to remain low key and fly under the radar.

    There used to be a great 15 minute video on CLNE's website that answered almost all your questions. It was a great discussion about CNG vs LNG. I assume it is still there. Required reading for any CLNE investor. I seem to remember a fast fill CNG station being around 2-3 million. You basically are very limited in places where you install them. There has to be a NG pipe distribution system in place and also permitting (which can be tough in a residential area) and most importantly spare electrical grid capacity to handle two 500HP compressor's. If you have a LNG facility like the Pilot projects you basically don't need the pipeline system in place so it's easy to add a CNG station there.

    NG Advantage trailer capacity?

    Thanks. What I was trying to figure out is what the viable trucking range would be to meet peak demand. I have read several articles about peak NG pricing in the northeast spiking to over $20 for power plants due to pipeline capacity issues. If you can buy NG for 3$ on the wholesale market and sell it for $10 on the spot/peak market you could afford to truck it a significant distance.

    You could never truck enough to run a Power plant for an extended amount of time but if you could just have 20 or 30 trailers filled and available for the peak demand time I would think it would make sense even it you had to truck it all the way from the Mid-Atlantic states.

    Why does someone "thumbs down" a question that it on topic?

  • Has anyone read what the capacity of one trailer is for NG advantage? Thx
