Energy Systems Group, an award-winning energy services provider, through a performance contract with Muncie Sanitary District, enabled the transition of their 12 refuse trucks and two street sweepers to CNG. By maximizing their fuel and maintenance savings, as well as operational efficiencies, ESG has provided MSD with a CNG station and enabled the up-fit of their maintenance facility, allowing their mechanics to continue servicing the fleet. The savings realized from this project, in addition to the revenue generated from this publicly accessible station, will pay for the project in just a few short years. Most recently, ESG partnered with CityBus, the Lafayette Transit System, to roll their bus fleet to CNG and build their private, fast-fill station.

IMPCO Automotive is a GM Tier One Supplier, FMC QVM & Ship-Thru, ISUZU, Thomas School Buses, and an Aftermarket Program.
Switching to an alternative fuel doesn’t have to mean complexity. While a lot of engineering and development go into the design of the system, the components are all designed to integrate seamlessly with the Blue Bird Vision chassis and new 6.8L & V10 powertrains’ from Ford. Blue Bird offers a complete line of Type A, C and D school buses in a variety of options and configurations.
Dekalb County School Bus Fleet and Fueling Program, Cutting greenhouse gas emissions, a cleaner riding environment for students and reduced maintenance costs for each unit are reasons cited by the district for buying the propane autogas buses. Autogas costs up to 50 percent less than diesel fuel, buses start in temperature as low as minus 40, without needing to be plugged in or block heater.
Cummins Westport Inc. designs, engineers, and markets 6 to 12 litre spark-ignited automotive natural gas engines for commercial transportation applications such as truck and buses. Our dedicated 100% natural gas engines are manufactured by Cummins and available as a factory-direct option from leading truck and bus manufacturers (OEMs).
