CNG Stations of America has announced plans to build its first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Northwood, Ohio, located at the southwest corner of Wales Road and Interstate 75. The station will be the first public-access fast-fill CNG station in the Toledo area.
‘We chose Toledo as our first location because Toledo has positioned itself as the leader in developing distribution networks in the Midwest,’ explains Marilyn Lahr, CEO and owner of CNG Stations of America. ‘As Toledo expands the number of distribution centers that call it home, we expect our business to grow, particularly because we are centrally located and offer a cleaner burning fuel alternative than diesel.’
According to Clean Fuels Ohio, there are currently 47 CNG fueling stations in Ohio, with eight more facilities in the planning stages.Â
CNG Stations of America has also partnered with Clean Fuels Ohio to host a CNG Working Group Meeting at the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments, inviting fleets in the surrounding area to learn more about CNG basics, benefits, and what incentives are available for conversion.
CNG Stations of America has plans to build 20 stations over the next four years throughout the Midwest and mid-South.
