ZeitEnergy has broken ground on a new compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in Arlington, Texas, that will, in part, serve the growing natural gas vehicle fleet of Atmos Energy Corp., a Dallas-based natural gas distribution utility.
‘We have been replacing our service vehicles with natural gas vehicles since 2010, when we first purchased more than two dozen Honda Civic GX NGVs for our meter readers,’ explains John Paris, president of Atmos Energy's Mid-Tex division. ‘We are thrilled to be introducing 67 new natural gas vehicles to our existing NGV fleet.’
Atmos Energy's latest complement of NGVs consists mainly of Ford F-150 and F-250 trucks. These trucks will access fuel at the new ZeitEnergy, located at Atmos Energy's service center at 1550 Tech Center Parkway in Arlington.
Atmos Energy serves more than 3 million natural gas distribution customers in eight states.
