Georgia City Eyes Switch to Compressed Natural Gas


The City of Albany, Ga., is moving forward with a compressed natural gas (CNG) initiative, which will involve purchasing CNG-powered transit buses and adding two fueling stations.

According to the Albany Herald, the city is planning to add 11 CNG buses for the Albany Transit System, as well as two fast-fill fueling stations. The report says the closest CNG fueling stations in the state are in Tifton, Thomasville and Valdosta.

The smaller station, located at Transit's facility, would be paid for by sales taxes totaling $1.5 million. The Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia would sponsor the larger, public-access station.

The city commission has given the OK for the bus purchases but still has to approve the stations, the Albany Herald says in another report.
