Florida City and Emerald Coast Utility Share Success Story

Emerald Coast Utilities Authority and Pensacola Energy, a city enterprise, are talking up the success of the northwest Florida town’s compressed natural gas vehicles program.

The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority claims the most diversified CNG fleet in Florida with a current roster of 88 vehicles, a projected total of 100 by October 1, and 130 by October 1, 2015. Pensacola Energy currently operates and maintains the fueling stations.

The CNG program in Pensacola has delivered fuel cost-savings of $1.1 million in 2012-2013, states a release, projecting savings of $1.3 million in 2013-2014 – in addition to more than $350,000 in maintenance costs, “that ultimately translate into additional cost-savings for ECUA customers.”

Pensacola and ECUA forged a ten-year agreement in 2011 covering two public access CNG fueling stations. CNG is currently priced at $2.05 per gasoline gallon equivalent.

A Growing Fleet

ECUA, says the announcement, has the most diversified CNG fleet in Florida, with Chevrolet and Ford pickup and utility trucks, Peterbilt semi and sewer vac trucks, and Autocar Xpeditor refuse collection and roll-off trucks.

ECUA expects to have 100 CNG vehicles in service by October 1, and 130 a year later.
