On Monday, Atlantic County, N.J., commemorated a new compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling facility operated by Clean Energy Fuels Corp. on Delilah Rd. in Egg Harbor Township.
The Atlantic City Jitney Association, which opened new headquarters on Delilah Rd., is the anchor fleet of the new public-access facility. The site will support the association's complement of nearly 200 CNG-powered shuttle buses, as well as other fleets' natural gas vehicles.
The Press of Atlantic City reports that Thomas Woodruff, president of the association, noted that the fleet's conversion to natural gas will result in fuel cost savings of $1 million a year.
A U.S. Department of Energy grant administered by the New Jersey Clean Cities Coalition partly funded the station.
