E.J. Harrison & Sons Awards LNG Supply Contract to Clean Energy
Seal Beach, CA (June 26, 2006)-- Clean Energy has entered a long-term agreement to supply Ventura, CA-based E.J. Harrison & Sons with clean-burning liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel for its fleet of refuse collection trucks. E.J. Harrison currently operates 10 LNG-powered alternative fuel trucks, and plans to order at least 15 more clean air trucks to replace its older diesel-powered models.
"Clean Energy keeps thousands of natural gas fleet vehicles operating everyday, and we are excited to initiate this fuel supply arrangement with E.J. Harrison & Sons," said Jim Harger, Senior Vice President, Clean Energy. "Along with E.J. Harrison, Clean Energy is committed to helping reduce environmental air pollution in Ventura County," Harger said, adding that natural gas is one of the best ways to prevent air pollution because natural gas burns cleaner than diesel and other alternative fuels, reducing harmful tailpipe emissions significantly. Clean Energy also provides the fuel at a price well below diesel.
"Trucks powered by Clean Energy's LNG fuel operate cleanly and quietly," said Myron Harrison, E.J. Harrison & Sons vice president. "Our company motto is 'service is everything,' and we believe that this commitment extends to helping maintain environmental quality for our customers, and all the residents of our service area." The company is now in the process of commissioning a new state-of-the-art LNG fueling station at its refuse yard, to meet growing LNG requirements.
