Southwest Gas and RTC are Collaborating to Expand Clean Fuel Transit Options in Southern Nevada

Southwest Gas, the RTC (Regional Transportation Commission) of Southern Nevada, and U.S. Gain are delighted to announce cooperation that will provide a cleaner, more cost-effective fuel source for RTC’s transit buses, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and operational expenditures.

The PUCN (Public Utilities Commission of Nevada) agreement allows Southwest Gas to supply RTC with environmentally friendly RNG (Renewable Natural Gas) to fuel the bulk of the agency’s public transportation fleet. The RNG was supplied by U.S. Gain, a Sustainable Energy SolutionsSM provider.

The RNG may be utilized in any application that currently consumes natural gas. The resultant RNG has a low, neutral, or negative CI (carbon intensity) score depending on the feedstock. RNG collects methane that would otherwise be discharged into the environment and reduces CO emissions as compared to diesel. Southwest Gas has been collaborating with a number of clients in our service zone that are either RNG developers or organizations looking for renewable natural gas supplies.”Southwest Gas is dedicated to stewarding a sustainable future via our operations as well as the clean and inexpensive renewable natural gas we provide to customers.

RNG is a strong option that will assist Southwest Gas customers in lowering GHG emissions. This significant and forward-thinking collaboration illustrates our capacity to deliver environmentally friendly sustainable energy solutions and technology to our loyal customers and communities ” CEO and President John Hester said.”RNG will enable the RTC to deploy clean fuel technology that is compatible with existing cars and fuelling infrastructure,” stated M.J. Maynard, CEO of the RTC.
