Clearwater Gas System (CGS), one of the largest municipal gas utilities in Florida, has rededicated its compressed natural gas (CNG) station located at 1020 N. Hercules Ave. in Clearwater.
This facility has been in operation since October 2011, but demand for CNG had outstripped the station's capacity, necessitating a site expansion and equipment upgrades. Specifically, the utility doubled the on-site CNG storage capacity and added a full-size back-up compressor to ensure redundancy and support more growth.
Today, the station regularly fuels about 50 natural gas vehicles operated by fleets such asÂ Clearwater's solid waste and gas departments, Jolley Trolley, Verizon and Waste Pro.
‘Clearwater Gas System is committed to the goal of offering a smart, economical and reliable fueling solution to meet the transportation needs of our local community,’ says Chuck Warrington, CGS' managing director.
