Refuse: Smithtown, New York, Renews Natural Gas Contract with Clean Energy
for Seven More Years
• In 2006, Smithtown became the first community on the East Coast
to require all residential refuse and recycling contractors to use
natural gas powered trucks. As a result, four private collection
contractors operating on behalf of Smithtown and the Town’s own
municipal vehicle fleet began fueling with Clean Energy.
• The 25 compressed natural gas vehicles serving Smithtown are
expected to consume approximately 250,000 GGEs of CNG per year.
“In 2006, Smithtown saw the potential of natural gas in a way many
other communities were still discovering. Making the switch to
natural gas has proven to be a smart investment from both an
economic and environmental perspective. We look forward to
continuing a very successful relationship with Clean Energy.”

Smithtown, New York

A VIEW FROM THE TOP:
An insider’s look at what this means for the Alternative Fuel Industry from
Clean Energy’s President and CEO, Andrew J. Littlefair:
We’ve begun the year with important expansions in our nationwide network
including the opening of the first LNG station in Florida today. Florida has
taken several steps to support the adoption of natural gas vehicles and we’re
expanding the necessary infrastructure accordingly to support this
forward-looking state. Heavy-duty truck fleets have also begun filling up at
our Pontoon Beach, Ill., and Fontana, Calif., stations as the heavy-duty
trucking segment continues its transition to natural gas across the country.
The New Year also saw longtime customers such as DART and the city of
Smithtown sign new fueling contracts with Clean Energy, which is a welcome way
to kick off 2014.
