The host sites will be located at Waste Management, Inc. of Toms River, Ocean County, and the Middletown Department of Public Works in Monmouth County. A third host site will be located at a beverage distribution company in Monmouth County. The specifications and design of the CNG fueling stations will be finalized within the next 90 days and all three stations will incorporate fast-fill fueling technology for the public. NJNG expects construction to be completed by the end of 2013.
The construction of these stations is a part of NJNG’s pilot program, approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities in June 2012, to increase accessibility to natural gas fueling in the state. Through the pilot program, NJNG can invest up to $10 million to build up to five CNG stations at host facilities throughout its service territory. This investment enables the host sites to benefit from CNG without the upfront costs of building a station, while realizing an accelerated payback on the incremental costs of acquiring NGVs.
