Panel explores converting vehicles to natural gas



Published: Thu, December 5, 2013 @ 11:59 a.m.

BROOKFIELD — A panel of industry professionals Thursday addressed the advantages and challenges of converting individual vehicles and commercial fleets to natural gas.

The discussion was part of the Natural Gas Vehicle Lunch and Learn at the Yankee Lake Ballroom on Route 7.

While panelists touted the natural gas as a cheaper, more abundant and cleaner fuel to develop, they also cited maintenance and infrastructural barriers.

Sam Spofforth of Clean Fuels Ohio said some industries have recognized a "tipping point" with the emergence of natural gas in Ohio, as refuse and transit industries make the switch.

State representatives Sean O'Brien and Nick Barborak were on hand to express excitement about the potential of natural gas in the state.

O'Brien has introduced a bill to incentivize businesses to convert to natural gas.
