  • Phill Station in Long Beach

    Is there anyone that owns a Phill Station in Long Beach? I would like to buy a station and want to know if you had problems with the city.
    Thanks

    I only know of a Honda exec. that has a phill in Long Beach. The city just came up with program for home fueling units. $50 a month meter fee and the lowest therm rate the city charges. If you have any questions PM me.

      The meter rate and gas tarriff is set by SoCal Gas. The city is a seperate issue. The installer has the priveledge of doing battle with them. As long as you have the gas co's Letter of Intent submitted and approved, you should be ok.

        The key word is 'appliance.' You or the installer gets a permit to install a new 'appliance.' If they ask, it's a gas appliance with national approval for home installation. As long as it's installed according to the instruction manual, they should approve it with no hassle. It has the same approval as dryers, ranges and furnaces which they sign-off every day. I showed the inspector the cover of the manual and he was done in 5 minutes (after taking a picture to show the guys back at the office).

          The City of Long Beach has its own municipal gas dept. that falls under DOT not the PUC. The city requirers a building permit for the gas line and any modification of the electrical. I and Honda has been working with the city to allow and set a policy for installing of a home fueling unit since before Phill was released for bata testing. This finally happened in the last 3 months.

            The gas company has been very helpful. They are going to install a second meter right below the Phill Station.
            It worked out great.

              The City of Long Beach is oputting on the Solar and Sustainablity Conference this weekend and the City is bringing a tour to my house on Sunday 5/3/09 to see how the Phill Station works. Very Cool!

                Does that mean that a Long Beach resident must pay an additional $50 per month for the $ 30 spent on CNG for a car?
