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.

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.
