“We are proud to have been a part of a project that will not only strengthen the City of Covington, but also our nation as a whole,” said Rahim Charania, CEO of AFS. “The opening of this facility is a sign that Georgia is continuing its path toward becoming a hub for alternative fuels and the environmental benefits that come with those developments.”
The first city-owned CNG station in the state of Georgia will be able to generate gas at a rate of over 1,000 SCFM. Working in conjunction with the storage designed by AFS, consumers will be able to fill their vehicles at a rate of 6-12 gallons per minute. This fast fill time, along with the well-lit environment and full security for the consumer will make CNG an even more attractive option for businesses in the area.
“The City of Covington’s innovative thinking will provide a cost effective, clean, American made transportation fuel for its citizens and businesses for many years to come,” said Arthur Corbin, President of the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia, which also helped bring this project to fruition.
