Assemblyman William B. Magnarelli, who attended the station opening ceremony, said: “I commend National Grid, NYSERDA, and Clean Communities of Central New York for investing in our region’s sustainable future. By opening the facility in Onondaga County and making it available to the public, National Grid has provided an alternative fuel source that will curb harmful emissions and help to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.”
The Cicero CNG station, which is expected to generate an estimated 52 new green jobs, is one of 11 projects in central New York receiving federal ARRA Clean Cities support totaling approximately USD 3.5 million, USD 2.8 million of which was designated to Onondaga County. These funds will help local governments, school districts, and college and universities purchase clean-fuel vehicles that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve local air quality.
