Leonardo Academy, a Wisconsin-based nonprofit dedicated to advancing sustainability, recently announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development ACE Program has awarded two grants that Leonardo Academy submitted on behalf of GAIN Clean Fuel.
The grant awards, which total approximately $1.2 million, will support GAIN Clean Fuel's construction of public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in Fairless Hills and Fredericksburg, Pa.
According to Leonardo Academy, key partners in these grant proposals are the anchor customers for the two sites: Silvi Concrete is partnering with GAIN to build the CNG station in Fairless Hills, and W.C. McQuaide Inc. is partnering with GAIN to add CNG dispensers at a Pacific Pride station in Fredericksburg.
Leonardo Academy says it is working with GAIN Clean Fuel, a brand of U.S. Oil, to procure funding in multiple states in order to promote the use of CNG nationwide.
“Leonardo Academy is proud to assist GAIN Clean Fuel in its efforts to make CNG readily available and, thus, to improve our air quality and slow global warming,” comments Michael Arny, the nonprofit's president. “Securing grant funding for clean fueling stations is a key part of our efforts to achieve the sustainable transportation of people and goods throughout the country.”
