Alternative Fuel Vehicles

Contact us for vehicle expertise, fleet analysis, refueling options and more!
PSE operates 47 hybrid vehicles, two plug-in hybrid vehicles and 23 bi-fuel vehicles in our fleet. Plus we recently introduced two electric Nissan Leafs and a Chevrolet Volt to our fleet. Finally, we operate 24 CNG vehicles and we are committed to more as vehicles are added and replaced.
Fueling vehicles with electricity costs approximately two-thirds less than fueling with conventional gasoline. Although EVs may appear expensive based solely on the sticker price of a particular car, they can be a prudent financial choice in many cases.
Government incentives can help lower the costs too; for instance, in Washington state, all-electric vehicles (like the Nissan Leaf) pay no sales tax.
We can help with information, analysis, charging locations, and proper sizing of electric vehicle (EV) chargers for businesses (and homes).
CNG and LNG: Compressed Natural Gas and Liquid Natural Gas
CNG is a plentiful and domestic fuel that is available at roughly half the cost of petroleum-based fuel.
A CNG-powered vehicle gets about the same fuel economy as a conventional vehicle. It can also be less expensive to operate and maintain. Since commercial vehicles typically travel a greater number of miles per year than personal vehicles, engine wear is greater. Using cleaner fuel like CNG reduces engine wear and allows commercial vehicles to last longer.
You may not need new vehicles to switch to CNG. Many CNG vehicles on the road today are the result of a conversion process performed by qualified installers utilizing kits that are certified by the Environmental Protection Agency.
PSE is exploring ways to expand our LNG business by providing fuel for the marine and long-distance trucking industries.
