Natural Gas (NG) Fueling Station Open in Hurricane
(Hurricane, UT) - Utah motorists who drive vehicles powered by clean-burning natural gas have something to celebrate – another new natural gas vehicle (NGV) fueling station in Hurricane, Utah. Hurricane Chevron located at 40 North 6300 West in Hurricane opened its natural gas pumps on Friday.
Robin Erickson, Southern Utah Director for Utah Clean Cities, says “Last year 22 Utah businesses, municipalities, agencies and school districts partner together and applied for grants under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Recovery Act. $14.9 million was awarded for Utah Clean Cities. The grant has helped create 16 new NGV public-fueling stations, upgrade 24 others and build three stations that dispense liquefied natural gas," according to Erickson.
Utah’s NGV fueling capacity has increased 45 percent, and this year more stations and larger compressors are expected to increase capacity by another 50 percent. The funding will also assist in offsetting a portion of the incremental costs for 678 alternative fueled vehicles.
