Demand for Three Years at Four Locations Is About 20 Million DGEs
Southern California’s Orange County Transportation Authority wants to switch to renewable natural gas to power its existing fleet of more than 340 compressed natural gas buses – and 202 new ones.
The agency “is seeking a qualified natural gas supplier to (1) supply 100% of OCTA’s natural gas requirements in the form of a guaranteed supply of renewable natural gas to OCTA’s four facilities on a non-interruptible basis,” states RFP 5-3636, “and (2) develop and manage OCTA’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program.”
Total demand at four CNG fueling facilities is projected at 28.4 million therms – more than 20 million diesel gallon equivalents – for 2016, 2017 and 2018.
OCTA’s largest fueling facility is in Santa Ana, followed by Irvine, Garden Grove, and Anaheim.
OCTA will hold a pre-proposal conference on its pending RNG purchases on October 8 in Orange, Calif. and will take questions on the solicitation until October 14.
Proposals are due November 17.
