MTNG held their NGV Consortium on June 27 in Crossville; and WTGA held a much higher profile version of their regularly scheduled meeting in Jackson on July 11 to demonstrate to the public and local businesses that NGVs are a viable transportation solution.
Pat Riley of Gibson County Utility District spoke at the Jackson event and was quoted by the Jackson Sun saying, “If we can connect people with $2 a gallon for natural gas, and connect industry with $2 a gallon for natural gas, we can keep more money in their pockets.”
The rallies also sought to highlight the fact that NGV refueling infrastructure is already in place in Tennessee and more stations are in development. Currently, there are public stations in Memphis, Athens, Nashville, and Wartburg and there are four other facilities under consideration. In addition, the regional organizations are planning more events around the state to promote NGVs.
