Trumbull County, Ohio, will soon be initiating a study aimed at investigating the potential for using compressed natural gas (CNG) in transportation applications.
The northeastern-Ohio county – whose notable cities include Youngstown and Warren – recently received a $100,000 Local Government Innovation Fund grant from the Ohio Development Services Agency, enabling the county to tap a consultancy to examine how municipalities and businesses could take advantage of CNG in their fleets.
According to coverage in the Tribune Chronicle, nearly two dozen government entities and commercial interests have committed themselves as partners in the study. The emphasis of the analysis will be on identifying where CNG refueling infrastructure can be best developed for the benefit of Trumbull County-based fleets.
The county has not yet hired a consultant to perform the study.
