$500,000 Grant for the Fullerton Joint Union High School District
Will Add Public CNG Fueling in La Habra, Southeast of Los Angeles
The California Energy Commission has approved a $500,000 grant for the Fullerton Joint Union High School District to upgrade its existing compressed natural gas fueling facility in La Habra, north of Anaheim.
The upgrade includes general site improvements and expansion to a fleet fueling system and the addition of a fast-fill dispenser for public use.
“The upgrades will allow the Fullerton school district to retire older diesel and gasoline burning vehicles in their bus and service vehicle fleet,” CEC says. “The upgrades also will allow the district to meet its projected CNG needs over the next ten years.”
Automated Public Access, 24/7
Dual hose fast-fill dispensers on new public CNG vending islands are to operate unmanned 24 hours a day, with an automated payment system.
Fullerton JUHSD plans to relocate the facility’s existing CNG compressor and related infrastructure from the southwest corner of the site to the northeast corner. Project plans include 17 new time-fill posts with two hoses per post, for a total of 34 hoses for district school buses and fleet vehicles.
The new public fast-fill outlet will have two dispensers/four hoses.
The site‘s six existing slow-fill posts (12 hoses) will remain.
The public-access fast-fill islands will be located under an 18-foot canopy.
Funding for the Fullerton upgrade project and the new fast-fill dispenser islands comes via ARFVTP, the CEC’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, which supports alternative fuel and transportation projects that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and California’s dependence on fossil fuels.
