Clean Energy Tapped to Provide LNG for Metro Transit District in Santa Cruz, Calif.

ENERGY RESOURCE-18 September 2007-Clean Energy Tapped to Provide LNG for Metro Transit District in Santa Cruz, Calif.(C)2007 JeraOne - http://www.jeraone.com

Clean Energy announced a five-year agreement to supply the Metropolitan Transit District in Santa Cruz, California (Santa Cruz Metro) with clean-burning liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel for its growing fleet of natural gas-powered buses.

Santa Cruz Metro plans to operate 63 CNG buses by mid-2008, including 10 currently in service and by replacing 53 older diesel-fueled buses with new or re-powered natural gas models.

Santa Cruz Metro has constructed a new L/CNG fueling station at its River Street Metroplex. LNG was chosen for the fuel supply because the utility's local distribution system could not provide pipeline gas to produce CNG in quantity sufficient to meet the anticipated future demand of a growing CNG fleet.

The LNG supplied by Clean Energy will be converted to CNG to fuel the fleet.

"Clean Energy keeps thousands of natural gas fleet vehicles operating everyday, and we are excited to initiate this fuel supply arrangement with the Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transit District," said James Harger, Senior Vice President, Clean Energy.
