COLUMBUS, GA, June 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Liberty Utilities will host a "Fuel Up and Fill Up" Luncheon on Friday, June 21, 2013 to kick-off the official launch of the addition of compressed natural gas vehicles (CNG) into their fleet. The vehicles will be rolled out as part of a pilot program with plans to expand into additional locations across eight states.
The luncheon will feature a close-up look at newly branded CNG trucks, fueling station demonstrations and an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of CNG technology.
Consumer interest in CNG vehicles continues to grow as a result of public concern over high gasoline prices, dependence on foreign-oil imports, climate change and air quality. According to America's Natural Gas Alliance, natural gas vehicles emit up to 30% less CO2 emissions than their gasoline and diesel burning counterparts, improving air quality and reducing greenhouse gases.
