Clean Energy Fuels Corp. says it will be building – and ultimately owning and operating – a trio of compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling facilities in Missouri over the next several months.
The largest of these stations will be located in Kansas City, where a new public-access CNG facility will serve the city's own fleet of more than 250 natural gas vehicles. Located at 5300 Municipal Ave. in Kansas City, the station is expected to supply over 1 million GGE of CNG annually.
The city council in Kansas City approved the project just this week.
Another station will be sited in Columbia, Mo., which is a midway point on I-70 between Kansas City and St. Louis. The city of Columbia has its own fleet of about 30 NGVs, and DART Trucking also operates a fleet of heavy-duty CNG trucks in the area. In turn, the station is projected to supply approximately 500,000 GGE per year.
Also, Clean Energy will build a station for Lee's Summit School District, located in Lee's Summit, Mo. The district operates a fleet of 140 CNG buses and will serve as the anchor fleet of the new station. Approximately 600,000 GGE will be supplied annually.
