Clean Energy Fuels Corp. will be building a liquefied-compressed natural gas (LCNG) refueling station in Pittston Township, Pa., located between Wilkes-Barre and Scranton.
This facility will feature both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling equipment and an initial capacity to dispense 1.3 million DGE of natural gas annually. Located near Interstate 81, the station will fill a substantial gap in natural gas refueling access, with the closest CNG station being 50 miles away, and LNG more than 125 miles away.
State Sen. John Yudichak and Rep. Mike Carroll had been instrumental in helping drive forward a $1.1 million grant to support the development. Clean Energy will additionally contribute $1.76 million to build the station.
‘Clean natural gas vehicles are the way of the future, and making a fueling station readily available and publicly accessible will prove to be a huge advantage for our region,’ Yudichak said.
