Green Mountain Power Trucks to Run on B-20 Biodiesel

August 09, 2005

COLCHESTER, VT — Green Mountain Power’s fleet of linetrucks will begin using biodiesel as a result of a new fuel arrangement with Champlain Oil Co. Green Mountain Power plans to introduce the clean-burning, organically produced fuel to its more than 20 diesel engine trucks in the Chittenden and Addison County areas this month.

Additionally, the next fuel delivery to its Washington County tank will be biodiesel. The company also plans to provide biodiesel to its trucks in its other service areas when it becomes available. Green Mountain Power will use B-20 biodiesel, a 20 percent blend of biomaterial and 80 percent conventional diesel.

B-20 biodiesel is the industry standard because it offers significant emission reductions at an affordable price and works with existing diesel engines. Champlain Oil Co. will also supply biodiesel for the University of Vermont from a pump at its main office.
