The roughly $500,000 station was funded in part by a State of Wisconsin Office of Energy (SEO) grant totaling $150,000. Besides, an additional $28,800 was recently awarded from the SEO to cover half the cost of five new NGVs for the county, bringing the total CNG fleet to 30.
Furthermore, to further increase CNG use in the fleet, the county ordered four snow plows that would run on the fuel generated at Rodefeld, what would turn Dane County the first to use this innovative equipment on large snow plows that could hit the roads as soon as this winter.
At the direction of the County Executive, staff will also begin work with a planning firm to explore the possibility of completely converting the entire county vehicle fleet within the next 10 years. The strategic plan will look at all aspects of this opportunity, including vehicles, infrastructure, fueling stations, maintenance, training, and costs.
