‘Earth Day’ Facility in Santa Ana, Calif. Is the Company’s First
Southern California’s Timco CNG is hosting the grand opening of its first compressed natural gas fueling station, in Santa Ana, this Tuesday, April 22 – Earth Day. A second station is to open at the Los Angeles airport in two months or so, and there are plans for as many as four more.
Timco CNG was founded by Timothy Nelligan and Jonah Schnel in 2012 as a privately-funded venture with the intent to expand the availability of alternative fuels. Nelligan also heads Go Natural Gas, a CNG station builder, which is likewise based in San Clemente.
Timco CNG plans to offer competitive prices to attract existing natural gas vehicle drivers “as well as encourage motorists to convert or replace gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles with cleaner burning NGVs that help improve air quality in the Southern California.”
The Timco CNG station in Santa Ana was built with the support of the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee, part of SCAQMD, the South Coast Air Quality Management District. The MSRC collects money from a $4 surcharge on vehicle license fees and dispenses it for projects to reduce air pollution from mobile sources.
