    Michael Bates for NGTNews Oct 29, 2020 - Cherriots Enters RNG Supply Contract with U.S. Gain

    Cherriots, also known as Salem (Oregon) Area Mass Transit District (SAMTD), has entered a RNG supply agreement with U.S. Gain, a renewable fuel provider that specializes in RNG for medium and heavy-duty fleets throughout the U.S.

    According to NW Natural, RNG is a zero-carbon resource produced from local, organic materials like food, agricultural and forestry waste, wastewater or landfills. As these materials decompose, they produce methane that can be captured, conditioned to pipeline quality and delivered in the existing pipeline system to homes and businesses where it can be used in existing natural gas appliances, equipment and vehicles. This process closes the loop on waste and provides a renewable energy option for the natural gas system, in the same way that wind and solar are used to generate renewable electricity.

    Cherriots currently has 34 of its 64 buses in its fleet running on RNG. The return-to-base fleet obtains RNG via U.S. Gain by transporting the gas from a landfill to the fleet through traditional natural gas infrastructure.

    Matthew Mercure for NGTNews May 18, 2020 - U.S. Gain Supplies Oregon Companies with RNG - NGT News

    U.S. Gain says it has become the largest RNG supplier in Oregon through supply agreements with Salem Area Mass Transit District, Gresham Sanitary, Heiberg Garbage & Recycling, and Pride Disposal.

    This news comes shortly after U.S. Gain announced its RNG supply agreement with the Port of Seattle for use at the Seattle Tacoma International Airport.

    “RNG offers significant greenhouse gas and criterion air pollutant emission reductions, benefiting not only our planet, but also the health and livability for residents in our local communities,” says Alex Schay with the NW Alliance for Clean Transportation.

    Gresham Sanitary Service's entire primary fleet is now powered by RNG. Heiberg Garbage & Recycling has a fleet of 11 CNG refuse trucks and Pride Disposal has a fleet of 25 CNG refuse trucks.

    Matthew Mercure for NGTNews April 20, 2020 - U.S. Gain Supplies SEA Fleet with RNG

    U.S. Gain has completed an RNG supply agreement with the Port of Seattle. RNG will be used to heat Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and power its fleet of buses.

    RNG can be procured through contracts with suppliers like U.S. Gain and comes without the need for infrastructure upgrades, features uninterrupted supply unlike other renewables and availability is increasing daily as new development projects come online, adds Nudelbacher, director of RNG business development at U.S. Gain.

    Don't forget to visit Vancouver Canada

    Hi Kameron :

    I've owned a NGV since 1991.

    Now that you've made it all the way up to Washington State, don't forget that you'll be able to fill up with Natural Gas here in Vancouver Canada.

    There are 19 NGV fill up points in or near the city of Vancouver, and if you can travel say 170 miles round trip, you'll be able to drive your NGV all the way to Whistler, then back to Vancouver. I make this journey all the time in my NGV.

    I am also very interested in the knowing when the Clean Energy stations open.

    Happy NGVing

    Stu Man

    Unless you have an extra tank installed,
    OR
    a couple of friends with home fuelers between Chico and Medford Oregon,
    the only way you can make that trek now is behind a tow truck.
    There currently is nothing public in Eugene, so a home fueler friend would be needed there also if you plan to return south.
    I would like to make the reverse trip from Portland going south into Calif, but I-5 just does not have sufficient gaps filled in yet on public CNG pumps.
    Keep checking the Station Locator link on this forum - something may pop up eventually.

    Re: Made it to WA State

    Kameron,

    When you say you made it to Washington state, did you drive a CNG vehicle there? And if so, would you please give us some details about your vehicle and your trip?

    On a personal note, I would like to travel from southern California to Eugene, OR in September driving my 2006 Honda Civic GX. I have a PG & E card, and it looks like it will be pretty easy to get as far as Chico, CA. After that, things look sketchy. If this is the route that you went, perhaps you or someone else in the community can fill me in on places to fuel, etc.

    Thanks in advance,
    Michael M

    You are a brave soul - there's only one public CNG station in the Portland, and that's in Hillsboro. Welcome to the crowd! Just think - when gas goes to 4.00 $ a gallon, you can point fingers and laugh!

    I'll update as I visit SeaTac and Tacoma! Factoria (I-90 and 405 interchange) will open in early December.

    Re: Made it to WA State

    HI
    Newby here, but do get up to Seattle area sometimes from Portland area where I am.
    Please post the locations and price info on those to be added fueling stations when they open. SeaTac and Tacoma locations are only ones I have been to.
    I will soon be the first Oregon owner of a 2008 Civic GX, and will be doing a break-in road trip that way.

    Re: Made it to WA State

    Hi John,

    I'm in Western Washington (Seattle area). At the moment, it's a trapeze act from CleanEnergy station to station. You've got Tacoma (Pierce Transit), Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and Everett (north of Seattle). The others are verboten to you and I. City of Seattle / Charles Street station is for government only, and Puget Sound Energy (the local gas company) won't let you use theirs (the gas company - who is in business to sell gas at a profit to consumers...if this makes sense to you, please write me an e-mail and explain it to me).

    Good news: CleanEnergy is building a brand new station right at the I-90 / I-405 intersection, which is *right* by my work. Also, they're hunting for two more spots in the downtown Seattle area to put up stations. I can't wait for that new station - it's right by where I'm working! I'll keep everyone posted on the progress up here.

    Re: Made it to WA State

    Hi Kameron, welcome to CNGchat and congrats on arriving in Washington. I expanded the scope of this forum to include the Pacific Northwest, so we look forward to hearing of your experiences. My understanding is that public CNG stations are very few and far between, right?

    Made it to WA State

    Hi everyone,

    I made it to Washington State with a little help from the locals. I am now one of the few, the proud CNG vehicles in Washington State. Clean Energy has several stations up here, and are building more as we speak. I have yet to see another aside from buses.

    Regards,

    Kameron
