IGS Energy has opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling facility on Spring St. in Charleston, W.Va., as a part of the retail energy supplier's plans to fortify the I-79 corridor with CNG stations.
The company already operates one such facility at an Exxon station in Bridgeport, W.Va., and a third West Virginia CNG location is planned for Jane Lew. About a year ago, IGS announced its intentions to build these three stations, along with a fourth in southwestern Pennsylvania.
The new station in Charleston features fast-fill CNG equipment from ANGI Energy Systems, including dual compressors and two tubes of gas storage. Natural gas comes onto the site via Mountaineer Gas' distribution network.
According to coverage from the Charleston Gazette, the retail price of CNG at the new facility is $2.19/GGE.
