We have some exciting news to share!  Bipartisan Leadership Spurs Job Creation, Infrastructure, and Cleaner Environment.


United Parcel Service (UPS) recently announced plans to build 15 compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations to support the purchase and planned use of 1,400 new CNG vehicles over the next year. 


 "UPS, as a company, carefully evaluates the metrics of state regulations and infrastructure prior to making a decision to convert fleets to cleaner natural gas," said Dominic Jordan, UPS Government Affairs director.  "Previously, Virginia lacked the necessary incentives.  In 2014 that shifted with Delegate Taylor's passed legislation.  The new laws were instrumental in our plans to move forward." 


Twelve of the CNG stations will be in new natural gas vehicle deployment areas, and three will replace existing CNG stations with more robust, higher capacity equipment.  Richmond, Virginia is one of the cities selected for the fleet infrastructure that can utilize lower carbon intensity fuel sources and increase experience using alternative fuels in freight transport applications.


"I applaud United Parcel Service (UPS) for courageously leading and making a profound monetary commitment in Virginia, as they step forward and convert their Virginia truck fleet to natural gas." said Delegate Taylor, "I also want to thank my colleagues in the House of Delegates and Senate for supporting and helping set the conditions for the private sector to thrive, in creating new jobs, cleaner air, and forward thinking infrastructure. This is what government is suppose to do"  



A list of Delegate Taylor's natural gas legislation:

House Bill 341: Exempts overweight permit fees to converting natural gas trucks

House Bill 345: Establishes a natural gas mechanic certification in Virginia

House Bill 340: Allows localities to tap into revolving fund to convert fleets
