CNG Station First ‘Much Broader Network’ in Southeast
Miami-based Nopetro is opening its first CNG station in Tallahassee, tomorrow morning, September 25. “This will mark the first link in a chain leading to the first viable network of compressed natural gas fueling stations on the East Coast of the United States,” the company says.
The new station will support natural gas vehicles including buses operated by the local Leon County Schools.
Nopetro says it plan to build CNG stations “in at least 18 additional markets in Florida and Georgia, leading the way to a much broader network that currently does not exist outside of California.
Nopetro Serves Businesses Too
“This network of stations will allow local governments to switch to CNG,” the company says, while “at the same time, the business sector will know it can move commodities on the state’s highways assured that a CNG station will be available when needed.”
Adam Putnam, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services, is to speak at the event. Also on the agenda are state Senator Bill Montford, Leon County Schools Superintendent Jackie Pons, Nopetro CEO Jorge Herrera, and Leticia Adams, energy policy director for the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
