CNG is the future for city fleets that want to lower costs and be more accountable. Increased natural gas infrastructure development is providing more construction jobs and 'fueling' the economy. There is an overall growing conversion rate of local commercial and municipal fleets according to Hardworkingtrucks.com.
New York City has made grant funding available, launching the second round of grants for clean tech vehicles, according to Fleetowner.com. Private and non-profit fleets operating in NYC can apply for funding in the form of an incentive up to $40,000 per clean fuel truck. Class 3 to Class 8 CNG vehicles such as a CNG powered pickup truck are included in this incentive.
Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is on board with the rapid growth of CNG. Adding a lightweight fiberglass composite Durashell or partially aluminum Load'N'Go Sportsman to a CNG powered-pickup would be the perfect combination for New York fleets and other municipalities to take advantage of this opportunity. The Fleetwest service bodies pictured below provide further fuel savings and are economic because they can easily be transferred from one pickup truck to another in minutes.
