$1.6 Million Facility Is the First in Georgia Owned by a City
The City of Covington, just east of Atlanta, has opened its first “Green Fuels Facility” featuring compressed natural gas, says American Fueling Systems, which publicized the award of a $1.6 million contract for the station this past summer. It is the first city-owned CNG station in the state of Georgia, AFS says.
“The opening of this facility is a sign that Georgia is continuing its path toward becoming a hub for alternative fuels and the environmental benefits that come with those developments,” AFS says.
The new self-service facility will be able to produce CNG at a rate of more than 1,000 standard cubic feet per minute. On-site storage will allow users to fill their vehicles at a rate of 6 to 12 gasoline gallon equivalents per minute.
“This fast fill time, along with the well-lit environment and full security for the consumer, will make CNG an even more attractive option for businesses in the area,” AFS says. Customers can pay with major credit and fleet cards.
