We’ve Liked CNG Since Before it Was Cool
Finding alternative fuel sources has long been a hot topic – and Georgia Natural Gas has been leading the conversation and the way. Since serving our first compressed natural gas customer in 2001, we have now expanded our CNG operation, under the SouthStar family of companies, to include other states in our footprint. The numbers we are promoting represent our CNG impact across Georgia and other markets. It’s also why our own company fleet car uses CNG! And we ran the first ever CNG education and car giveaway campaign in Georgia.
At GNG, we like to stay ahead of the curve. As early adopters of CNG, our staff has unparalleled expertise in the field and are frequent speakers at events across the country. From issues like complex billing capacity to understanding telemetry issues, we’ve established ourselves as a leading authority and top partner for station builders and companies with fleets.
What We Are Doing
We supply CNG for hundreds of natural gas vehicles and equipment – from cars to light, medium and heavy-duty trucks and off-road equipment. This clean-burning fuel is showing its power and savings to our customers in a major way.
1Represents the natural gas consumption billed to CNG customers, across the SouthStar footprint, each month and shown as a cumulative total to-date (January 2017). This number is also converted to diesel gallon equivalents (DGE).
2An estimated 5 miles per gallon, miles driven by a common transportation vehicle, is used to calculate miles driven. The 5 miles per gallon is then multiplied by the total natural gas consumption billed to-date (January 2017).
3Dollars saved is calculated monthly by taking the difference between the most recently available retail price of diesel and CNG published by the Energy Information Administration Alternative Fuels Data Center and multiplying that difference by the total CNG consumption billed for that month, and shown as a cumulative market based savings total for all months to-date (January 2017).
4Carbons reduced is calculated by taking the difference between the pounds of carbon in diesel and CNG. The measurement of pounds is converted to tons using standard metric conversions and then multiplied by the total natural gas consumption billed to-date (January 2017).
