Virginia’s Getting It Done: One Part Propane, One Part Natural Gas
Next-Gen Transportation News
On Tuesday, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell announced that his administration had formed agreements with two private companies that will develop alternative fueling infrastructure and, in turn, spur a quicker adoption of propane autogas and compressed natural gas (CNG) among the state’s fleet vehicles.
The governor also put his ink on a recent memorandum of understanding that is pooling states’ purchasing power for natural gas vehicles (NGVs). Spearheaded by Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, the collaborative and resulting request for proposals – the initial results of which are expected to be announced later this week – are designed to create steady demand for NGVs and, therefore, foster a market for new OEM NGV offerings.
