  • Sacramento County and Clean Cities Officials Celebrate $1.9 Million Station


    August 7, 2015 in Biomethane, CNG, Infrastructure, LNG, NGVs by Rich Piellisch | No Comments

    TruStar Energy and officials in Sacramento this week celebrated the opening of a new $1.9 million compressed natural gas fueling station to support County refuse trucks and an increasing number of other natural gas vehicles.

    Sacramento County refuse trucks are the lead customers at the new CNG facility.

    Nice setup for filling dozens of commercial trucks. Can't tell if public can use.

      Thanks for posting this. I continue to hope for Sacramento area options, outside of Davis PG&E 24hr and Sacramento PG&E M-F non-24hr. Went to the new West Sacramento Clean Energy station at highway 50/80, as it was on the path today, to find only LNG pumps.

      You most likely have seen this. Per TruStar press release, only commercial references are discussed.

        How about Woodland for CNG? Tried that one yet?

          After selling over a dozen LNG refuse trucks a year ago, it was learned that Sacramento County will be putting its other 2009 LNG trucks up for auction soon. The Peterbilt trucks with ISLG engines sold for either $8000 or twice that figure last time around. Then, along comes this press release of the County inking an LNG fuel contract. This would suggest that refuse trucks are replaced at less than 10 year intervals because, clearly, the County is staying with the fuel (and has its own LNG station in North Highlands.)

              Bidding is up to almost $8000 on boom LNG truck, but reserve minimum has not been satisfied yet . .
