HOUMA, La. (AP) - The Terrebonne Parish Council has voted to pay for a $19,000 study to examine the feasibility of converting some or all of the parish's more than 400 vehicles from gasoline and diesel to compressed natural gas.
The study will be done by Baton Rouge-based rofessional
Engineering Consultants Corp.
It is reported that the study will examine which vehicles among the parish's cars, trucks and buses would be candidates for conversion to compressed natural gas.
A letter sent to parish officials before Tuesday's vote says the study also will look at the cost of converting the vehicles as well as the possible savings.
