May 2, 2021. SoCalGas is expanding its partnership with Landi Renzo USA to convert 200 new Ford F-250 service pickup trucks to run on renewable natural gas (RNG) – a renewable form of energy produced from various waste streams from dairy farms, wastewater treatment plants, landfills, and other resources. The latest Landi Renzo Eco Ready™ equipment is a California Air Resource Board-certified ultra-low emissions vehicle system, expected to reduce over 2,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) per year after the completion of this project. That’s the same as removing 1,800 passenger vehicles from Southern California roads for one year.
The fleet conversion project plays a large role in SoCalGas’ recent commitment towards achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in its operations and delivery of energy by 2045. With the addition of these 200 new net-zero emissions service trucks, nearly 40 percent of SoCalGas’ fleet will be operating on clean fuels.
“This project is one of the many decarbonizing 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.
“By committing to their sustainability goals with real action, SoCalGas and Landi Renzo USA are providing a model for businesses to make the switch to cleaner fuels,” said South Coast AQMD’s Executive Officer Wayne Nastri. “These efforts will go a long way in helping South Coast AQMD achieve its clean air goals.”
This fleet conversion project is expected to be complete by the end of this year.
