Compressed natural gas
Compressed natural gas (CNG) is a compressed form of the natural gas commonly used in homes for cooking and heating. Widely recognised as a reliable and clean fuel source, CNG has become a cheaper, cleaner and efficient fuel for road transport.
Major transport fleet operators are increasingly choosing CNG over diesel, petrol and even liquid petroleum gas (LPG).
ActewAGL is committed to the growth of CNG throughout the ACT region as an affordable, cleaner transport fuel option.
CNG makes sense because it:

While individual operators can realise the benefits by using compressed natural gas (CNG), private and government fleets may also realise significant reductions in their vehicle operating costs. We know, because we're using CNG in our own fleet.
ActewAGL is committed to providing low cost compressed natural gas for your transport needs.
Fleet operators with restrictive fuel policies may face higher operational costs and expose their business to a higher carbon footprint. This is frequently compounded by purchasing popular makes, models and configurations of vans and trucks which are often big carbon emitters and can lead to higher ongoing operational expenses and environmental impacts.
Making the right fuel investment decision offers owners significant reductions and stability in fuel operating costs, resulting in better investment returns.
Factory fitted CNG vehicles are now available in Australia. Traditional conversion of existing or new vehicles is also available using the latest CNG technologies and authorised conversion specialists. Both options are cost effective and returns on the investment strengthens the case for CNG. When compared with conventional fuels, CNG represents good value to the fleet operator and owner.
