Weld County’s first CNG station, which will be open 24 hours a day offering duel hose fast fill dispensers for light, medium and heavy duty vehicles, is presently the northernmost public site in Colorado. The initiative was partially funded by Congestion, Mitigation, and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant monies through the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) along with matching funds from Mansfield, Anadarko, Noble Energy, and Encana. CMAQ funds also have helped buy 11 natural gas vehicles for the county.
“Infrastructure has been the greatest challenge to overcome in adopting CNG as a transportation fuel. We’re excited to debut our first of two fueling sites in Weld County and look forward to continuing to work with our industry partners to develop natural gas infrastructure throughout the U.S,” said J. Alexander, president of Mansfield.
