A Better Fueling Infrastructure Will Help Alleviate Range Anxiety
The Maryland Energy Administration and Maryland Clean Cities are inviting applications under the new Natural Gas Refilling Station Grant Program to help bolster the state’s natural gas vehicle fueling infrastructure.
“Establishing adequate natural gas refilling infrastructure addresses ‘range anxiety,’” says a notice circulated this morning – “one of the prime concerns associated with consumer purchasing behavior and the use of natural gas vehicles.”
The state is making $2 million available with bids accepted until January 12. Matching funds are required.
MEA says it anticipates issuing four or more grants in support of privately run, publicly accessible fast-fill stations in Maryland. Both compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas fueling installations are eligible, as are combined CNG-LNG facilities.
