Penske Truck Leasing wins NG maintenance grants

Penske Truck Leasing announced this week at the Alternative Clean Energy (ACT) Expo it was awarded grants totaling $525,000 from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) in Diamond Bar, Calif. The grants will help offset the company’s costs to modify its existing locations in Southern California and enable it to provide maintenance services on trucks with engines that run on natural gas.

“Natural gas is a growing option for trucking fleets when it comes to fuel sources,” says 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 says each facility will receive $75,000 grants (estimated completion dates listed in parentheses):

  • 2000 E. Wilshire Ave., Santa Ana (Q4 2014)
  • 2727 S. Santa Fe Ave., Vernon (Q4 2014)
  • 19646 S. Figueroa St., Carson (2015)
  • 14228 Slover Ave., Fontana (2015)
  • 15050 Northam Rd., La Mirada (2015)
  • 2300 E. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles (2015)
  • 11200 Peoria St., Sun Valley (2015)

Penske currently has several facilities nationally (Baltimore; Davenport, Iowa; Phoenix; Pottsville, Pa.; Neenah, Wis.; Salt Lake City; and Wilkes-Barre, Pa.) 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, the company says.
