TravelCard Commercial Fueling CNG commenced operations this week, representing the first public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in the state of Oregon.
‘Our family feels strongly in investing in an energy future that is better for our environment,’ says John Anderson, an owner of Truck Haven, which established the new station. ‘My daughter, nieces and nephews are going to be the generation where CNG is as common as traditional gasoline is today.’
The facility, which is open 24 hours a day, is located at 65 N. Seneca Rd. in Eugene, off Highway 99 a few miles from Interstate 5. The CNG infrastructure was added to an existing gasoline/diesel station at a cost of about $500,000. NW Natural Gas is the gas supplier to the site.
‘This is the first of many CNG stations around our state,’ said Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, who was on hard for the dedication ceremony.
