Local dignitaries and more than one hundred attendees attended the ribbon cutting and grand opening of Corridor Clean Fuels’ (CCF) new compressed natural gas fueling site, located in the city of Dothan. At the ceremony, Mayor Mike Schmitz proclaimed: “It’s hard to be the first, but I believe CNG is the wave of the future”.
Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver added: “The good thing is not only is CNG good for our state and our community, but it’s good for our nation in that it uses a domestic product to make fuel and keeps us from being dependent on foreign oil.”
Mark Bentley, Executive Director of the Alabama Clean Cities Coalition stated: “Having a public-access fast-fill station in Dothan will not only serve drivers who are already using CNG, it will encourage both fleets and individuals to make the switch to this domestic, cleaner-burning alternative to imported oil and diesel fuel.”
The new station includes two 250 hp compressor packages and two internal card reading CNG dispensers, each with light-duty and heavy-duty nozzles.
A CNG Workshop was held following the grand opening to help promote education and adoption of using compressed natural gas as an alternative fuel to gasoline and diesel. The workshop featured presentations on a number of topics including an overview of CNG, engine availability for the transportation industry, and financially compelling examples of potential savings for fleet management.
