Clean transportation technology organization representative CALSTART sent a letter to California Governor Jerry Brown, Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León, and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon Thursday, supporting the state’s low carbon fuel standard.
CALSTART, along with over 150 member businesses including fuel producers, vehicle manufacturers, and vehicle fleet operators, lauded the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) for providing incentives needed to invest in new clean vehicle and fuel technologies.
“The LCFS is spurring the growth of a cleaner fuels industry and creating new jobs in California,” said John Boesel, CALSTART chief executive.
“We have been seeing a steady expansion of the low carbon fuels industry in California. The LCFS is working and should be continued and strengthened.”
Signatories of the letter, including Love’s Travel Stops, a truck stop and convenience store chain, and Trillium CNG, a leading provider of renewable natural gas for natural gas vehicles, emphasized the LCFS’ importance to their customers.
“Love’s and Trillium CNG strongly support California’s LCFS program,” said Bill Cashmareck, Trillium CNG president.
“It allows our companies to continue to invest with confidence in renewable natural gas, creates good-paying jobs that support our business, and allows us to deliver clean-burning fuels to the state of California.”
