ANGI Package for as Much as 500 GGEs Daily,
Now the Task Is to Boost the City’s NGV Fleet
The City of San Mateo has completed its wastewater-to-CNG fueling facility using an ANGI Energy package, and is looking now to expand its modest fleet of compressed natural gas-fueled vehicles.
The city broke ground for the project, for which it received a $2.45 million grant from the California Energy Commission, just under a year ago (F&F, December 22, 2015).
“We couldn’t meet our climate action goals without programs like this,” said San Mateo Mayor Joe Goethals.
‘A Model for Other Local Governments’
The successful project is “a model for other local governments,” CEC energy and fuels program manager Tim Olson said at yesterday’s facility opening.
San Mateo currently operates two dedicated-CNG Ford F-150 pickups and a CNG-gasoline bi-fuel Chevrolet Impala.
The new CNG fueling station features two 50-horsepower NG50E compression units with a nine-cylinder, multi-pressure storage cascade.
Unison Solutions, Monterey Mechanical and Kennedy/Jenks provided engineering and related services for the ANGI installation, which is located south of SFO, the San Francisco International Airport.
