EERE funded the development and deployment of 272 alternative fuel vehicles and four new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations statewide.
At one CNG fueling station in Camden, 80 slow-fill pumps serve Waste Management’s fleet of natural gas-powered trucks and one pump is open to the public. This station alone is expected to displace more than 1,750,000 gasoline gallon equivalents per year, and reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by more than 600,000 pounds.
The New Jersey Clean Cities coalition is part of EERE’s national network of 100 Clean Cities coalitions, which are self-organized groups of local community, government, and business stakeholders. These coalitions provide resources and technical assistance in the deployment of alternative and renewable fuels, idle-reduction measures, fuel economy improvements, and new transportation technologies. Clean Cities’ efforts to adopt smart transportation solutions have displaced more than three billion gallons of gasonline and diesel since 1993.
