EQT Corporation : EQT Helps Accelerate the Use of Natural Gas Vehicles by Awarding Grants to Non-Profit Organizations

01/30/2012 | 09:55am US/Eastern

EQT Corporation today announced that the EQT Foundation awarded more than $900,000 in grants to five Pittsburgh area non-profit organizations to support community programming and promote the use of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs).

"These organizations are working hard to promote goodwill throughout our community," said Charlene Petrelli, EQT Foundation president. "Grants from the EQT Foundation will help them with the purchase of NGVs, which in turn becomes a win-win situation all around - for the organization, the environment, and the community. In addition, since compressed natural gas is less expensive than gasoline or diesel, NGVs can positively influence their budgets through a reduction in operating costs over time."

As a fully integrated energy company, EQT has long championed the adoption of NGVs, particularly for area fleets, by helping organizations and local governments obtain grants for the purchase of NGVs. In addition, EQT opened a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Pittsburgh's Strip District in July 2011, and is converting its own fleet and that of its distribution subsidiary, Equitable Gas Company, to natural gas.

During the past 18 months, EQT Foundation grants for NGVs have been awarded to the following non-profit organizations:

  • Carnegie Science Center - one bi-fuel vehicle for use in an EQT-sponsored "Science on the Road" program. Bi-fuel vehicles operate on gasoline and CNG.
  • Family House - one CNG vehicle to assist the transportation needs of patients and families who come to Pittsburgh for treatment of serious or life-threatening illnesses.
  • Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium - one CNG vehicle to help facilitate community outreach relating to environmental programs.
  • Manchester Bidwell Corporation - two CNG passenger vans to enhance community outreach and student programming.
  • Allegheny CleanWays - one CNG truck to help expand its "DumpBusters" clean-up program for communities outside the City of Pittsburgh.
