SoCalGas Hosts Free Natural Gas Trucking Workshops
In an effort to expand the awareness and adoption of natural gas and alternative fuels for heavy-duty trucking and goods movement, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) will host a series of free workshops in Southern and Central California. The series begins May 12 in Riverside and continues through October in locations including Los Angeles, Bakersfield and San Diego.
Current data shows some 200,000 heavy-duty trucks operate currently in Southern California. The goal of the series is to deliver information to fleet operators and owners to help them understand and assess the economic and environmental alternatives for heavy-duty trucks fueling. Representatives from SoCalGas will join experts on energy policy, environmental regulations and vehicles to discuss the benefits of fueling with alternative clean, proven technology.
Fleet operators who have already transitioned to natural gas-powered trucks will be available at the workshops to share their first-hand experiences. Ryder System, whose heavy-duty trucks have logged 30 million miles on CNG since 2011, will display new CNG-powered trucks.
