Additionally, Utah celebrated the opening of the 33rd public CNG facility in the State. In this case, it is located in Washington City and was financed by a grant from the Department of Energy.
In the ribbon cutting ceremony, Southern central director of Utah Clean Cities Robin Erickson said “This partnership effort will provide Washington City the ability to convert their fleet to compressed natural gas and provide a CNG dispensing point station open to the public”.
Meanwhile, Eastern U.S. is also expanding its natural gas infrastructure. The city of Columbus (Ohio’s capital) is building a CNG refuelling station which hopes to open to the public by October.
According to The Columbus Dispatch newspaper, it is part of a plan to add 24 CNG vehicles to the city’s fleet this year, with a promise for more vehicles and three more stations over the next seven years.
