Clean Energy Furthers Sustainability Goals with Transition to 100% Renewable Power

By Raleigh Gerber

As the leading supplier of renewable natural gas (RNG) in North America, Clean Energy helps customers meet sustainability goals by replacing diesel fuel with clean natural gas.

When the wholesale power supplier that provided electricity for Clean Energy’s natural gas fueling stations across Texas discontinued operating in the ERCOT region, Clean Energy was presented with an opportunity to not only save costs but also accelerate its own sustainability goals. The company owns and operates 19 fueling stations in Texas—including Dallas, Houston, Waco and Mesquite—as part of its 530-station network across North America.

In adopting power that is generated by wind turbines, Clean Energy has achieved a 24% reduction in its goal to reduce energy consumption 25% by 2025. The energy is provided by Reliant, a division of energy provider NRG, which delivers customer-focused solutions for managing electricity, while enhancing energy choice and working towards a sustainable energy future.

“As a company with an aggressive goal to achieve a 100% zero-carbon fuel portfolio by 2025, it made the most sense to go with the 100% renewable energy source to power our own facilities,” said Ashley White, Director and Head of Sustainability, Clean Energy. “This solution from Reliant will allow us to meet our energy usage sustainability goals, while reducing operational costs.”

Clean Energy announced goals to offer its zero-carbon Redeem™ RNG at all its fueling stations by 2025, summarized in its Corporate Sustainability Report. By transitioning exclusively to Redeem by 2025 and by achieving zero-carbon intensity, Clean Energy would outdistance other alternative fuels, including electric vehicles, which are not excepted to hit that mark until 2045.
