SoCalGas is expanding its partnership with transport company Landi Renzo USA to convert 200 Ford F-250 service pickup trucks to run on renewable natural gas (RNG).
The latest Landi Renzo Eco-Ready™ equipment is a California Air Resources Board-certified ultra-low emissions vehicle system, expected to reduce over 2,000 tonnes of CO2-equivalent per year after the completion of this project.
SoCalGas’s fleet conversion project plays a large role in the firm’s commitment to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in its operations and delivery of energy by 2045. With the addition of these 200 new net-zero emissions service trucks, nearly 40% of SoCalGas’s fleet will be operating on clean fuels.
“This project is one of the many decarbonising initiatives we’re implementing here at SoCalGas as we continue to move towards a net-zero future,” said Sandra Hrna, vice-president of supply chain and operations support at SoCalGas.
“To achieve our sustainability goals, we work to build strong relationships with innovative partners to help us continue delivering technologies to further decarbonise the transportation sector.”
Andrea Landi, president of Landi Renzo USA, commented: “SoCalGas and Landi Renzo USA have been longstanding partners and we’re thrilled to collaborate and expand our partnership to produce a clean fleet of vehicles for SoCalGas, and expand our partnership for the future of clean transportation.
“We are thankful for this opportunity; it supports our local community and partners while also promoting the importance of clean transportation and technologies to help us support a sustainable future.”
