SoCalGas Demonstrating Galileo Microbox CNG Fueling Station


Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) has launched the field demonstration of a new natural gas vehicle fueling technology called the Galileo Microbox – a compressed natural gas (CNG) ‘fueling station in a box,’ the company says.

The Microbox, developed by Galileo Corp., is currently being showcased for the first time in the U.S. at SoCalGas' Riverside customer service base. The compact fueling station provides CNG at about $2 per gasoline gallon equivalent to vehicles operated by the city and county of Riverside, AT&T and SoCalGas, as well as regional school bus and taxi companies and consumer vehicles.

The Microbox and similar modular fueling station technologies contain all the primary components required for a refueling facility in a single, factory-integrated enclosure the size of a small shipping container, SoCalGas says.
