South Jersey Gas announced the opening of its new CNG fueling station in Cape May County. The station, located at 650 Shunpike Road Burleigh, New Jersey, is open to the public and exclusively offers renewable natural gas. The new station and biomethane supply is part of an ongoing sustainability initiative at South Jersey Gas to reduce its carbon footprint and provide customer-focused solutions for homes, businesses and transportation.
As part of the renewable natural gas initiative, South Jersey Gas is displacing traditional natural gas at all company owned and operated fueling stations with bio-CNG sourced from a landfill biogas project. This supply will further reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for all fleets using these facilities – including the South Jersey Gas fleet.
“We are happy to offer drivers in the South Jersey Gas service area with this environmentally-friendly fueling option,” said Dave Robbins, president South Jersey Gas. “Across our organization, we’re committed to identifying and implementing solutions to help New Jersey residents and businesses reduce their environmental impact — the opening of our newest renewable natural gas station is another meaningful indication of this commitment.”
In New Jersey, vehicles account for more than 40% of GHG emissions, according to the 2018 NJDEP (New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection) Statewide Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory. Switching from diesel to renewable natural gas, fleets can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by up to 48%.
