Washington Gas Converting 200 Vehicles to Natural Gas

January 03, 2012

WASHINGTON - Washington Gas said it plans to double the size of the number of vehicles in its fleet than run on natural gas, which will bring that total to 200. This effort is part of the gas company’s overall effort to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent by 2020, when compared against a 2008 GHG baseline.

“Sustainability is embedded in our business strategy, whether through this initiative at the utility, purchasing clean energy through Washington Gas Energy Services, or providing energy efficiency and solar solutions through Washington Gas Energy Systems,” said WGL Holdings and Washington Gas Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Terry D. McCallister. “Reducing our carbon footprint exemplifies the fact that we are using energy efficiently and making wise decisions when considering our natural resources. While world leaders debate about global goals, America’s businesses can take eco-sensible steps today to reduce energy costs and the long-term effects of GHG emissions.
