1 Decision Point Which Way to Go on Choosing a New Clean Fuel? Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission CNG and Propane School Bus Workshop October 2015

2 Rhea Courtney Bozic Environmental Scientist and Clean and Alternative Fuel DVRP Alternative Fuel School Bus Workshop Consultant since 2003 Worked for Lower Merion S.D. since 2003, and many other CNG station development projects Organized Motor Fuel Workshops for the New York Propane Gas Association Chief Judge of THE GREEN FLEET AWARDS since 2007

3 Why Green the Fleet? - Potential to save money on fuel costs - Philadelphia region is in Non-Compliance with federal air quality standards

4 Where do we start? Considering CNG vs. propane What are my options???

5 CNG vs. Propane -- Overview CNG PROs Does not contaminate or dilute the crank case oil, increasing the oil s life Lower tailpipe emission than diesel Disperses easily in air (lighter than air) No chance of spills 98 percent of natural gas is domestic Lower price volatility than CNG or diesel CONs Occupies more space than diesel or LPG. Mitigated in factory-built CNG vehicles by integrating the tanks into the vehicle body design. Fueling infrastructure can be expensive Vehicle cost differential higher than for LPG Propane PROs Non-toxic and non-corrosive. Lower tailpipe emission than diesel. Less space than CNG for storage. Fueling infrastructure is less expensive than for CNG CONs Lower energy density than gasoline or diesel and hence the equivalent fuel consumption is more LPG provides less upper cylinder valve lubrication. If a LPG-fueled engine is not suitable modified, it will lead to valve wear Does not disperse easily and is readily inflammable

6 Regional Infrastructure and Utility Concerns Natural Gas- where are existing stations? US DOE Station Locator: Ideally would want at least one if not two backups Do I have gas on the street? (may not be a dealbreaker) Propane must be delivered Who else has done it? Investigate fueling agreements with other organizations. How much help can I get with this? Utility, Clean Cities, Consultant, Turnkey Fuel Provider

7 Gaseous vs. Liquid Fuel Propane is a liquid and handles more like a traditional fuel- psi around Compressed natural gas is around 3,600 psi Potential bus garage improvements/modifications Propane can sink into pits; indoor storage issues Natural gas may require lighting upgrades and methane detectors tied to the HVAC system and garage doors

8 Either Fuel Requires Driver and Mechanic Training

9 Build Your Own vs. Turnkey Fuel Provider Will I really save money by using a turnkey contractor who builds my station and sells me back the fuel? Depends on scale of entry Annual mileage driven by the buses Are we just against turnkey on principal What are our long-term objectives? Established fuel provider with a track record of commitment and stability (this is harder than you think)

10 Let s Look at Rough Costs Example CNG Fleet: Middle Country Central School District, Long Island, NY 32 CNG School Buses Got Turnkey fuel station provider but now taking over station itself Cost of fuel with Turnkey- $3.80/dge Total Final Cost of fuel in-house 2015 $2.52 but apply $0.50 rebate= $2.02 vs. diesel cost $ ,536 gallon equivs. used per year x $0.36= $23, fuel savings This is with cheap diesel; remember when it was nearly $4.00??? Example Propane Fleet: G. Davis Inc., Contractor Fleet Serving Dallas and Wallenpaupack SDs, PA New contractor for District and wanted to address age of buses and air quality issues 12 year depreciation period on buses 27 Propane Buses and 19 Diesels Saves $200 per bus service (filters, oil) Locked in price for a year. First year was $1.51 ($2.02/dge) before tax rebate. Second year it was $1.72 ($2.30 dge). Third year at present cost is $0.71 ($0.95/dge). $0.27 highway usage tax applicable to private contractor- District would be exempt Alt. Fuel Data Center shows retail propane $2.85 vs $2.97 for diesel but we have to look at energy equivalency which equates to $3.82 for a diesel gallon equivalent so it s really $3.82 propane vs. $2.97 diesel. This is counting very expensive places like U-Haul facilities. ril_2015.pdf

11 Example Middle Country Central School District Fuel Cost Components for District Owned CNG station Natural Gas (taken from National Grid bills) Electricity (taken from PSEG bills) Operations and Maintenance Cost (used three example costs in local market) Tax Credit per Gallon Rebate Amortization Costs of Station Construction (but this station is paid for so not included in example) Gas- $1.72 Electric- $0.39 O&M- $0.41 $2.52 Total Less IRS Rebate (minus $ 0.50) Final Total Cost: $2.02 Diesel Gallon Equivalent of CNG

12 Comparing Fuel Energy Contents on an Even Basis Fuel: Diesel Gasoline CNG Propane Energy Content in BTU s 138,327 per gallon 125,070 per gallon 138,237 per DGE (100,000 BTU/Therm) 91,333 per gallon (1.5 gallons = 1 DGE) Source: New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, Implementation Funding for Small Municipalities, ARRA, Appendix Q

13 Propane Costs of Fuel Rack Rough Costs ex. $0.60/gallon $0.90/DGE + Transport and Delivery- Depends on Bulk vs. non- bulk, is there a pipeline nearby. Added to laid-in cost. This varies could be $0.50 to $1.00/gallon $0.75 to $1.50/DGE. Large deliveries have lower laid in costs + Profit- again can vary and depends on volume. Smaller volumes can have large markup = ±$1.75 to $2.50/DGE??

14 Price Variability Over Time

15 How about building the station CNG- Time fill vs. Fast Fill Dispenser Time fill is cost effective but you lack flexibility. Example for ten buses/ gge s overnight $ K. Helps if you have other stations in network where you can fast fill. A dispenser can be $70K Fuel stored in cylinders, not a fuel tank- uses electronics to dispense from the cascade Fast fill CNG stations costs highly dependent upon site conditions and fleet requirements. Depends on capacity, flow rate and dispenser capability. $ K for medium sized gge Example- Town of Oyster Bay, NY fast fill and time fill array for 50 refuse trucks, 2 dispensers $3.2 Million Propane Small station example size 2,000 gallon $60,000- $70,000 (20 buses/day). Dispenser cost is more commensurate with traditional fuel. Small stations will have higher fuel costs due to delivery costs. Houston Independent School District spent $300,000 for its 18,000 gallon tank and dispensers Largest station of 18,000 gallons will have the lowest fuel costs due to delivery cost benefits (

16 Visuals Natural Gas- Time Fill Array Propane

17 More Visuals Natural Gas- Fast Fill Dispensing Propane- Larger Commercial Station

18 Vehicle Additional Costs and Providers- Heavy Duty Platform CNG Cummins $38,300 public bid Lower Merion for 72 passenger rear engine Propane Ford/Roush GM/Clean Fuels USA Ranges, but as a potential ballpark $7,500- verbal, Roush Vehicle Cost Delta may close on smaller platforms- pickup trucks, vans You can green these types of vehicles too!

19 Simple Cost Calculations How much diesel fuel do you currently use? How much does that cost you per year? What is the cost in DGE of CNG/Propane? What is annual fuel savings? What is the extra cost of vehicles? Other extra costs (garage, maintenance)? Other benefits (no USTs, quieter buses, clean air)? What is payback period? If the simple calculation makes sense, consider a more in-depth analysis.
