Conversions on three major domestic brands

Through our partnership with Barnes Power Equipment, we can furnish and install EPA certified CNG fueling system conversions for current year and recent model year fleet vehicles. If desired, we can also convert some older yet still useful vehicles using non-EPA certified universal kits. Trained qualified technicians will complete your conversion typically within a week of system components arriving at our location. See our services section.

Cost savings to you

CNG is an excellent alternative vehicle fuel due to a number of factors, including low cost, clean engine operation and lower maintenance expense.

Environmentally conscious

Barnes Green Energy is not the first environmentally conscious venture for Barnes. He recently started Barnes Power Equipment, a commercial lawn equipment company that sells mowers that run on propane; the cost of propane is currently at $1.39 per GGE (gasoline gallon equivalent). Barnes, Inc. intends to convert its entire remaining fleet of maintenance equipment over to propane in the next two years to increase savings, Barnes says.
