Will Put Up as Much as $500,000 Per New Public Access Outlet
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is making $3.6 million available to help increase the number of public access compressed natural gas fueling stations in the state.
NYSERDA says it will make available as much as to $300,000 per site for eligible capital costs, including installation labor, to proposers willing to pay up to half the cost of a new CNG station, or up to $500,000 per site to those willing to ante 75%.
As NYSERDA Sees It, There Aren’t Not Enough NGVs
“Currently,” NYSERDA says, “the U.S. imports more than 47% of the oil it uses, while 98% of the natural gas used in the U.S. was produced in North America.
“Every gallon equivalent of natural gas used in vehicles is one less gallon of petroleum that has to be imported,” the agency says. Although natural gas vehicles meet the strictest emission standards, NYSERDA notes, “only about one-tenth of 1% of natural gas is used as a transportation fuel.”
