BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The burgeoning growth of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) for fleets and transportation throughout Florida has caught and held the attention of policy makers across the state.
The Honorable Adam Putnam, Commissioner of Agriculture, will address the attendees of the Florida Natural Gas Association’s Annual Convention from 2:00 - 2:35 to kick start the day’s business sessions and tabletop tradeshow related to vehicles, fueling stations and fleet applications within the CNG arena.
“The impact of Compressed Natural Gas on Florida’s long term transportation needs comes from the properties of the fuel itself,” said David Rogers, Executive Director of the FNGA. “Clean burning CNG not only helps the environment in a big way, fleet operators can expect their fuel costs to drop about 40%. That’s a lot of money when you have an entire fleet of trucks and buses on the road.”
The event will be held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club from June 17-20, 2014. Anyone interested in attending the convention can register at FNGA.com or call 850.681.0496.
