U.S. Gain’s RNG to fuel Los Angeles County Sanitation District vehicles
The company entered into a supply agreement through a competitive bid process with LACSD. As part of its sustainability goals, LACSD received a Carl Moyer Program grant in partnership with the California Air Resources Board and South Coast Air Quality Management District to work towards guidelines for reduced air pollution. As part of the grant, LACSD solicited proposals to help support its emissions reduction goal, improve fleet operations, and find alternative fuel solutions.
“The LACSD are very appreciative of the Carol Moyer grants received from the South Coast Air Quality Management District,” said Dave Bolderoff, LACSD’s fleet manager.
“These grants have helped out agency replace older vehicles and engines with newer, cleaner-burning equipment and install alternative fuel infrastructure, thus helping us further fulfil our mission of protecting public health and the environment.”
Scott Handstedt, U.S. Gain’s director of sales, commented: “Demand for RNG continues to skyrocket within the California transportation market, serving as an affordable, clean solution that supports immediate emission reduction goals.”
“Our vertical integration and ability for expedited turnaround allowed us to act quickly and provide RNG on day one to comply with the grant requirements.”
California offers economic incentives for alternative fuel use, spurring interest from fleets across market sectors. Today, leading trucking, refuse, school, municipality, and transit fleets are using RNG as a preferred solution.
