Clean Energy, Agility Set Joint Natural Gas Sales Program

Agility Fuel Systems

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. and Agility Fuel Systems, which designs and produces natural-gas fuel storage and delivery systems, announced a joint fuel-system sales program to reduce the incremental cost of heavy-duty natural-gas trucks.

The two will work with trucking customers and offer compressed natural gas fuel systems installed at what they called “substantially reduced cost” when a natural-gas fueling agreement is in place.

“Our goal is to give heavy-duty natural-gas truckers a ‘diesel-like’ experience, which means it is as easy to buy, fuel and use with the added benefit of using cleaner and less expensive natural gas,” Agility CEO Barry Engle said.

“Reducing the upfront cost of switching to natural gas is critical for America’s trucking industry,” said Brett Lindsay, regional vice president of Clean Energy, which supplies CNG and liquefied natural gas for trucking.

The joint program with Agility “addresses this issue directly and is another compelling product offering to help fleet operators make the switch to natural gas,” Lindsay said.
