CNG Fuel Inc. has opened the first public-access fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in Findlay, Ohio, located about 50 miles south of Toledo near the junction of I-75 and U.S. route 224.
The facility, which is within the Ohio Logistics Park on Distribution Drive, is targeted to the general public but will also serve a handful of core fleet customers, including Home City Ice and Cardinal Logistics.
‘Facilities like this one in Findlay are going in all over the state and are providing economic benefit to the business community,’ said Ohio state Rep. Robert Sprague during a ribbon-cutting ceremony late last week. ‘We have a strategic plan at the state level to encourage CNG use.’
The grand opening featured a fueling demonstration and an NGV showcase, with a ‘CNG Lunch & Learn’ program following immediately afterward at the University of Findlay.
Fort Wayne, Ind.-based CNG Fuel Inc. already operates a CNG station in Dayton, along with three sites in Indiana, in Indianapolis, Lafayette and Greensburg.
