With this station, the Aviation Authority is expected to save more than USD 1 million in the first five years, according to an official announcement. Additional revenue is anticipated when the pumps are open to the public, reported Aviation News.
TPA will be the first airport in Florida to implement natural gas for vehicles and the initiative will reinforce the introduction of more NGVs in Tampa’s streets, which will also help save significant money on fuel.
It is worth mentioning that the CNG station represents one of many partnerships the TPA is developing to boost green projects. A few years ago, the airport implemented a recycling program and reclaimed water initiative.
