Greenville Utilities: CNG Use Thriving for Local Fleets


North Carolina’s Greenville Utilities Commission (GUC) is reporting an uptick in usage for its compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling facility.

Located at 290 Easy St. in Greenville, the public-access station opened in September 2015. According to a local report from The Daily Reflector, the facility is used by the commission itself, as well as East Carolina University and Waste Industries, for a total of 34 vehicles – representing almost four times as many as when it opened.

For an average price of $1.61 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE), the facility has dispensed a total of 404,000 GGE of CNG, bringing in $649,500 in revenue for GUC. In fiscal year 2017-2018 alone (ended in June of this year), the station dispensed 153,000 GGE, bringing in $250,000 in revenue.

Further, both East Carolina University and Waste Industries are in the process of adding more CNG vehicles into their respective fleets.
