Southern California Gas announced last week it will convert 200 new Ford F-250 service pickup trucks to run on renewable natural gas (RNG), which is produced from a variety of waste streams. The trucks will be equipped with Landi Renzo Eco Ready equipment, which is a California Air Resource Board-certified ultra-low-emissions vehicles system. The newly equipped RNG vehicles are expected to reduce more than 2,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year, which is equivalent to removing 1,800 passenger vehicles from the roads for a year. "Depending on its source, RNG can be carbon negative, meaning it avoids more emissions than it emits when produced and used as a fuel," said the company, the largest gas distributor in North America. SoCalGas said with this program, 40% of its service vehicles will run on clean fuels, part of the utility's commitment to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.
