Natural Gas Vehicles in Florida

At the beginning of 2011, there were only two public natural gas fueling stations in Florida: one in Ft. Lauderdale and one in Milton. This picture is rapidly changing as Florida is now home to more than 30—with plenty more in the works.

Many commercial businesses and governmental agencies are already using clean, energy efficient natural gas vehicles to fuel their fleets. For example:

  • Choice Environmental in Pompano Beach has 18 natural gas fueled trucks in its fleet

  • Republic Services in Lakeland operates 50 refuse trucks in its natural gas fleet

  • Veolia has a fleet of 32 natural gas fueled trucks
  • The City of Clearwater built a fueling station that serves trucks in its Solid Waste Department, and is also open to the public

  • Tallahassee’s Leon County School District has eight new CNG fueled buses, and has
    opened a state-of-the-art NGV refueling facility with plans underway to build a second

  • AT&T in Broward County has a fleet of 24 service vans fueled by natural gas

  • Tampa International Airport’s public fueling station was opened to the public in 2011. The airport also plans to convert its diesel-powered employee and economy parking lot shuttle service buses to natural gas—displacing approximately 275,000 gallons of diesel per year with cleaner, more efficient energy

  • Pensacola Energy and Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) teamed together to construct two public access CNG stations. Both stations also have a private side used by ECUA. Pensacola Energy also constructed a third station with private access only for the City of Pensacola fleet.
  • Currently there is a total of 139 NGV’s operating in the Pensacola area with an estimated 30 additional NGV’s being purchased annually as the existing fleet of gasoline and diesel powered vehicles are retired
  • Major fleets in the area include AT&T, ECUA, Escambia County Area Transit (ECAT), Escambia County and the City of Pensacola
  • Escambia County has 15 natural gas Ford F-150 trucks and will be switching to additional NGVs as opportunities arise
  • The City of Gulf Breeze currently has a 9-Natural Gas Vehicle fleet
  • Examples of natural gas utilities/ FNGA members utilizing one or more NGVs include Florida Public Utilities, Lake Apopka Natural Gas District, Florida City Gas and numerous more. (In 2012, FPU also used CNG trailers to initially serve Fernandina Beach natural gas customers until construction of their permanent natural gas pipeline was complete)
