Penske Truck Leasing is the recipient of grants totaling $525,000 from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) in Calif0rnia. The grants will help offset the company’s costs to modify seven existing locations in Southern California and enable it to provide maintenance services on trucks with engines that run on natural gas. Works will be carried out between Q4 2014 and end 2015.
“Natural gas is a growing option for trucking fleets when it comes to fuel sources,” said Jennifer Sockel, Senior Vice President of Administration and Facilities for Penske Truck Leasing. “These facility retrofits will enable us to better serve our truck fleet customers in the region and support their sustainability goals now and into the future.”
Penske currently has facilities in the U.S. States of Iowa, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania that are ready to service or currently service natural gas vehicles and more than a dozen others being retrofitted as part of upcoming new construction for NGV maintenance in select markets. Penske also has customer onsite NGV maintenance locations.
