Mansfield Clean Energy Partners, the joint venture of Clean Energy Fuels and Mansfield Energy, held a grand opening ceremony for the first compressed natural gas station built to serve the MCEP venture.
Casey Cagle, Lt. Governor of Georgia, and Donna Pittman, Mayor of Doraville, participated in the ceremony and toured the new corporate headquarters of MCEP located adjacent to the new card-lock CNG station, designed to support heavy duty natural gas tractor-trailers.
Located at 2765 Woodwin Rd., Doraville, Georgia, the new card-lock natural gas fueling station will fuel Mansfield’s growing fleet of 12 natural gas trucks, as well as other area fleets.
Natural gas fuel costs more than $1.00 less per gallon than gasoline or diesel, depending on local market conditions. The use of natural gas fuel not only reduces operating costs for vehicles, but also reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30% in light-duty vehicles and 23% in medium to heavy-duty vehicles. In addition, virtually all natural gas consumed in North America is produced domestically.
