Commercial fleet owners who are interested in learning about the transition from gasoline and diesel to natural gas are invited to attend.
The event will provide information about the advantages of using compressed natural gas, which is more energy efficient and cost effective than gasoline or diesel fuel, as well as offering tips on making the transition an easy process.
“Migrating to CNG may seem a daunting task, but the transition provides enormous benefits both to the environment and to an organization’s bottom line,” said Joey Kline, director of Business Development for AFS. “We want to ease any concerns fleet owners may have about using CNG and offer a roadmap for making the transition.”
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at AFS’ CNG fueling station, 4420 Buford Highway NE in northeast Atlanta. The facility, Georgia’s largest publically accessible CNG fueling station, is owned and operated by AFS and supplied by Gas South. Atten-dees will be able to tour the CNG station and food and beverages will be provided.
At the event, Gas South and AFS will recognize organizations that have successfully migrated to CNG-fueled fleets. Representatives from two companies, Savannah Distributing and Penske, will be on hand to discuss their successful transition to CNG.
“It is important to not only tout the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas but to reach key stakeholders who are considering making the switch,” said Chris Coan, vice president/general manager of business and Government Markets for Gas South. “This educational event is designed for companies that are on the fence about switching to natural gas. They will learn firsthand what it takes to transition to CNG and the benefits of making the switch.”
Gas South serves about 270,000 residential, business and governmental customers throughout Georgia and Florida. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cobb EMC, one of the country’s largest electric cooperatives.
