Pensacola Energy will operate and maintain the CNG station and plans to open it to corporate fleets and the general public in the future. The site features four “fast fill” hoses as well as 90 time-fill dispensers which can be used to refuel vehicles overnight. Zeit Energy of Dallas was the contractor for the project.
According to ECUA Executive Director Steve Sorrell, transitioning to natural gas vehicles will allow an annual maintenance cost savings in excess of $350,000 and a savings of about $900,000 in annual fuel costs. “And there are environmental benefits associated with the use of NGVs in that there are less greenhouse gas emissions than the diesel-powered vehicles they are replacing,” he added.
