The first installation will be in Baytown, Texas. Others will follow as determined by demand as assessed by Pilot Flying J and CEFC.
"With the availability of new, Class 8, 2010 EPA-compliant natural gas trucks from several major manufacturers, major regional and national trucking operators are considering the move to natural gas for their fleets to add fuel diversity, lower emissions and reduce dependence on imported oil," notes Clean Energy President and CEO Andrew Littlefair. "Partnering with Pilot Flying J will not only allow us to help meet the demand from these fleets, but will also enable us to begin creating a nationwide goods movement corridor for natural gas trucks."
Pilot Flying J operates over 550 truck travel centers in 43 states and six Canadian provinces. It is the largest truck-fueling operator in the country.
