Clean Energy Opens New Florida CNG Station for Hillsborough Transit Authority

| April 24, 2014

Clean Energy FuelsClean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ: CLNE) has announced the opening of the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) compressed natural gas (CNG) station to serve the first transit agency in Florida expected to transition its entire fleet to cleaner-burning natural gas.

This fueling station will be equipped with four fast-fill CNG dispensers to fuel buses, vans and other fleet vehicles.

The project includes capacity to add additional compressors as the HART fleet gradually transitions its entire fleet to CNG buses.

HART awarded Clean Energy the contract to design, build, operate and maintain the new CNG fueling station to support its investment in a cleaner and more cost-effective bus fleet.

The project entailed the construction of a CNG fueling station plus modification of existing maintenance facilities and fuel lanes.

The modifications were engineered and implemented by Clean Energy’s Facility Modification Services team.

“Natural gas is available domestically and at this time, costs approximately 20 to 25 percent less than diesel,” said Katharine Eagan, HART interim chief executive officer.

Over the coming weeks, HART plans to deploy 28 new CNG vans to replace its diesel-powered models. Early next year, HART expects to put 22 new CNG buses in service as its diesel buses are retired from service. By the end of 2015, HART expects a total of 59 CNG vehicles to be in service.
