1 Compressed Natural Gas Symposium and Showcase CNG 101 Keith Gruetzmacher November 5, 2013

2 Terminology NGV – a vehicle that uses CNG or LNG fuel CNG – natural 3600 psi, 70 o F LNG - natural 3.6 psi, -260 o F Bi-Fuel – uses natural gas or gasoline/diesel Dual Fuel – uses both natural gas and gasoline/diesel

3 GGE: Gasoline Gallon Equivalent The amount of natural gas containing the same amount of energy as a gallon of gasoline. (125 ft 3 or 1.25 Therms) 4 GGE = 5 Therms DGE: Diesel Gallon Equivalent The amount of natural gas containing the same amount of energy as a gallon of Diesel (140 ft 3 or 1.4 Therms) 5 DGE = 7 Therms Terminology (continued)

4 Safety Benefits Lighter than Air Ignition Temperature = 1080° F Flammability Range 5%-15% (gas to air mixture) Non toxic CNG is approved for all tunnels and bridges Major Standard – NFPA 52 “Vehicular Gaseous Fuel Systems Code” Natural Gas Properties Safety Benefits

5 Storage containers are designed, manufactured and tested to rigid specifications Bonfire test Pressure test for 18,000 cycles of pressurization and depressurization Gunfire test Crash test – cylinders dropped several feet Cylinders include a pressure relief device CNG Cylinders Safety Benefits

6 CNG Station Components

7 Fast-Fill DispenserTime-Fill Posts Fueling Options

8 Target Markets Key Characteristics: High Mileage Low fuel efficiency Central - refueling Refuse Transit Airports / Taxis MunicipalsService Distribution

9 Dedicated NGVs ClassVehicle TypePremium or Conversion Diff Costs Heavy DutyRefuse, transit, distribution and school buses $35,000 - $50,000 per vehicle Medium DutyShuttle, cargo van, pick-up, utility $9,500 - $25,000 per vehicle PassengerSedan$3,000 - $10,000 per vehicle

10 NGV Pricing Benefits Source:

11 Source: US EIA – Energy Information Administration, Energy Outlook 2012 NGV Pricing Benefits Projected Price of CNG and LNG Through in DGE

13 Source: NGVAmerica NGV Pricing Benefits

14 Florida Fuel Costs 1 – (November 1, 2013) 2 – AAA Fuel Gauge Report – FL Average (November 1, 2013)www.cngprices.com RateCost/ ScheduleGGE CNG FL Avg. 1 $2.25 Unleaded 2 $3.26 Mid 2 $3.51 Premium 2 $3.47 Diesel 2 $3.87

15 Compelling case for vehicle conversions

16 Economic Price stability and cost less Incentives & funding No pilferage American Jobs Creation Improved Balance of Trade Environment - Cleaner Air Reduction in Greenhouse Gases -23% Reduction is Diesel Particulate Matter- 27% Improved Work Environment for Employees Energy Security Improved - North American fuel reduces America’s dependence on Foreign Oil Benefits

17 Reduction in Noise – engines are quieter then diesel engines Increased Vehicle/Equipment Product Availability Increased station equipment, station installers/suppliers Increases in Supply – Various US Shale Plays Increased Industry Support Benefits

18 Peoples Gas has seen tremendous growth NGV Therm Sales have increased by 544% and 182% in 2011 and 2012, respectively Number of customers has more than doubled in 2 years /207, /300, /412, /601 Have the potential to double the number of customers within the next year Have signed a new customer who at full build-out could potentially use more gas than the total of 2012 Florida Growth
