The natural gas supplier will increase dispensing capacity of the gaseous fuel at the Whitehall Street site in downtown Atlanta and add CNG facilities at the East Point, Lithonia and Tucker locations. Construction is projected to begin in second quarter 2011 while NGV drivers will be able to fill up at any of these computerized stations, which will operate 24/7, by September.
“By expanding the availability of compressed natural gas at our fuelling stations, we encourage individuals and fleets to reduce their petroleum consumption and impact on the environment by switching to cleaner, alternative fuels,” said PS Energy Group’s president and CEO Livia Whisenhunt.
This project is part of the $39.5 million Clean Cities Atlanta Petroleum Reduction Program, a local public/private partnership co-funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Clean Cities Initiative to support clean fuels, vehicles and infrastructure development to improve fuel economy and air quality in metro Atlanta.
