DEP Announces Upcoming Alternative Fuel Workshops in Erie and Clearfield Counties

MEADVILLE – The Department of Environmental Protection, along with its partners at Pittsburgh Region Clean Cities, will hold free workshops in Erie and Clearfield counties for private and municipal fleet owners and operators, trucking companies, school districts, and alternative fuel station developers.

The Erie workshop will be held, Aug. 1, at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center at Presque Isle State Park. The Clearfield workshop is scheduled for Aug. 8, at Lock Haven University’s Clearfield Campus.  Workshops run from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

Attendees will learn the benefits of operating fleet vehicles using alternative fuels, such as compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), and propane (LPG).  Speakers will provide information on the growing natural gas fueling infrastructure in Pennsylvania, and how to apply for Alternative Fuel Incentive and Act 13 Natural Gas Vehicle grants.  Several alternative fuel vehicles and school buses will be available for viewing at each workshop.

Registration for these workshops is required, and can be completed by contacting Teresa Willey at DEP’s Meadville Regional Office, 814-332-6816, or by email –
DEP and its partners would like to thank the National Fuel Gas Distribution Corporation for helping to sponsor these workshops.
