Create a Predictable Operating Environment

Chart 2 OL

Since 1999, diesel costs have increased 150%, compared to 38% for electricity. The fuel mix for electrical power in the U.S. can change depending on supply and price fluctuations; therefore, electricity’s ability to substitute different fuel sources allows for increased reliability. Electricity is also more fuel efficient than diesel and creates a notably lower carbon footprint (even when compared to CNG).
