A new public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling site has been completed in Trussville, Ala., and will be officially opened to the public in mid-January.
The city and its municipal utility, Trussville Utilities, partnered with McCullough Oil to locate the CNG infrastructure at an existing Chevron station not far from Interstate 59, which runs into nearby Birmingham, reports the Trussville Tribune.
The city, which loaned McCullough Oil approximately $1 million to develop the CNG station, already has a number of natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in its fleet: more than two dozen police vehicles, two fire vehicles, a dump truck and a Honda Civic. Trussville expects to have about 40 NGVs in service by the station ribbon-cutting on Jan. 16.
