Water company adds CNG trucks to its fleet

Posted: January 26, 2013

Pennsylvania American Water has became the latest company to give compressed-natural-gas vehicles a whirl.

The water company on Friday unveiled four Ford F-250 bi-fuel trucks that can run on CNG or gasoline and will operate out of the company's Coatesville and Punxsutawney depots. The vehicles will be fueled at existing commercial CNG stations.

The utility, which is applying for state grants promoting vehicles that use cleaner-burning natural gas, plans to build its own fueling facility in Scranton in 2014 that would support up to 36 vehicles.
