For now, the station will serve only public NGVs. By June, 20 of the city’s 600 vehicles will be running on natural gas. Much of the cost to convert the fleet and build the fueling station was covered by grants and community donations from businesses like EOG Resources and Tanos.
In addition, local company First Alternative Fuel has already set aside a spot right next to downtown where in the future East Texans can fill up their own vehicles with natural gas. It will be a good backup for the new city fueling station, according to the company.
