In our continued effort to incorporate technologies that result in cleaner emissions and reduced operating costs, Easton Utilities has converted
several of its vehicles to run on natural gas. For more information on the benefits of natural gas as a vehicle fuel, please take a moment to browse through the links below.
Natural Gas Vehicles
A natural gas vehicle or NGV is an alternative fuel vehicle that uses compressed natural gas (CNG) or, less commonly, liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a clean alternative to other automobile fuels. NGVs can have an immediate and positive impact on the issues of air quality, U.S. energy security, and public health. According to the Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition, the United States has more than 120,000 NGVs on the road today with more than 8.7 million NGVs in operation worldwide.
Natural gas is one of the cleanest fossil fuels and costs less at the pump than traditional fuels such as gasoline or diesel. It can also help reduce our nation's reliance on imported foreign oil since it is domestically abundant, safe and offers an environmentally responsible solution to our nation's energy needs today and tomorrow.
