AUSD Director of Operations, Transportation, and Food Services Dr. Brook Reynolds spearheaded the project. “I’m very excited to see the station up and running and our vision come to fruition,” he said. “We are fortunate to be able to work with great partners whose missions and visions of sustainability, technology, education, and being environmentally conscious all align with what we believe in as a district.”
The California Energy Commission (CEC) contributed $300,000 to the CNG project through a grant, and the Mobile Source Air Pollution Review Committee (MSRC) contributed an additional $175,000.
“We are hoping to continue to work with the MSRC and others to launch a phase two of the project and expand our CNG station,” Dr. Reynolds explained. “Ultimately we would like to expand and have a second compressor and two additional storage tanks. This would increase our ability to allow other agencies and school districts within our community to use our facility via fast fill.”
