    The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), one of Florida's largest public transit fleets, has finalized an agreement whereby Clean Energy Fuels Corp. will design, build and operate a compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station for the organization.

    JTA is eyeing the conversion of 100 buses from diesel to CNG, ultimately consuming an estimated 1 million DGE of CNG annually. In turn, the agreement also specifies that Clean Energy will handle comprehensive fleet facility modifications in order to facilitate JTA's conversion to heavy-duty natural gas vehicles.

    The overall deal is valued at $8.1 million.

  • SOUTH BEND -
    Most South Bend police cars, trash trucks, and other vehicles won't be filling up at local gas stations in the coming years. That's because they'll run on compressed natural gas.

    It's all because of a partnership with Transpo -- one that the city, Transpo itself, and people in our community will all benefit from.

    Transpo's new Compressed Natural Gas buses have been in town since September, but if you haven't seen them on the road, it's because they've been parked in a lot.

    “So we had an opportunity to take the buses before they were ready to go into service, to give us time to plan, to train our mechanics, to train our bus operators and ultimately get our compressed natural gas station built,” explained Transpo General Manager David Cangany.

    The compressed natural gas, or CNG station is being funded by grants and should be up and running by August.

    “Transpo will have the first fast fill station between Gary and Cleveland, along the toll road. So we'll be able to fill a bus between five and 10 minutes, that's the same amount of time it takes to fill a bus with diesel fuel,” said Cangany.

    And it won't just be Transpo that benefits, but also police cars, trash trucks, solid waste vehicles and snowplows.

    Kara Kelly, spokesperson for the City of South Bend says the city will have 60 vehicles ready to run on CNG when the fast-fill station opens and they plan to have 70 percent of the city fleet run on CNG over the next five years.

    The city estimates that over a decade using CNG will save the city at least $13 million in fuel costs.

    And it will available to you as well.

    “So it's huge not only for Transpo, but for our community and the region that we're going ....

    cancer, stay positive. Over the last year this board has posted negative responses and bashed the company 80% of the time. The stock has fallen from $22 to $3.45. Can't help but wonder if 80% of the posts were positive if the trend would go the other way.

    Stop wondering.....nothing that happens here effects the stock ....at all....ever not even a billionth of a penny
    It's actually the other way around...

    True, it is what it is: Slow Organic Growth..

    No reversal; no spike in prices until there is major news. This is all in management's control... How about, "Demers Announces His Retirement, Effective Dec. 30, 2014"?
    Now that would move the needle...IMO

    I wish you could just say yes that congress news is a good thing and talk about that...and not smother every topic with your standard well known complaints .....with that said...

    Besides firing dreamers.....what else is really in managements control....getting someone to buy a few 1000 engines ?

    Synergy Natural Resources receives funding for PASS box fleet
    By: AJOT | Dec 08 2014 at 05:23 PM | Intermodal

    Synergy Natural Resources has acquired a funding commitment by Pacific Western Equipment Finance (Pac West) for the launch of the PASS Box(TM) container aggregate delivery system. Pac West’s plan for funding the leases of the PASS Box is now commencing. As the first transaction of an approved $540 million financing plan, $50 million of the funding is budgeted for 500 PASS Box(TM) containers, 240 Cheetah ISO trailer chassis, and 50 Peterbilt natural gas trucks that are to be used in the fracturing sand market for delivery to oil & gas drilling operations and to those customers or suppliers in that industry. This is just the first step in a venture that shall change the way that aggregate materials are delivered internationally.

    Synergy Natural Resources, LLC invented and developed the revolutionary PASS Box(TM). A weatherproof portable aggregate supply system. Customers may transport dry bulk aggregate such as sand, cement or grain throughout the intermodal chain without having to unload the product. The ability to transfer from ship to rail to truck and stacked at the site makes the PASS Box(TM) a worldwide logistical solution.
