Event Highlights: Working closely with the New Jersey Clean Cities Coalition (NJCCC), the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) opened the area’s first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station. Organized by the NJCCC as an Odyssey Day event, the grand opening celebration for the new station showcased a variety of natural gas vehicles being used across New Jersey. During the day, a number of speakers provided information on the economic and environmental benefits of CNG and other alternative fuels. More than 100 enthusiastic local fleet managers, public officials, private citizens, and others attended this event.
The ACUA’s CNG fueling station will provide “fast-fill” dispensers, which can fuel a CNG truck in the same time it takes to fill a regular diesel truck and will serve both the ACUA and third-party fleets. The station was designed and built by Clean Energy with the capacity for future expansion.
