(I would hate to lose access to the alternative fuel station map database maintained by Transportation Energy Partners is urging everyone to make a formal request to the Energy and Water Appropriations Subcommittee to include the following in the FY 2018 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill:
      Within available funds, the committee recommends $50,000,000 for Outreach, Deployment and Analysis to support the Clean Cities Alternative Fuels and Vehicles Deployment Program. Within this amount, $40,000,000 is provided for deployment through the Clean Cities Program, including at least $20,000,000 for competitive grants to support alternative fuel, infrastructure and vehicle deployment activities. When issuing competitive grants, the department is encouraged to focus on awards that range from $500,000 to $1,000,000 each and include at least one Clean Cities coalition partner. The department is encouraged to ensure balance in the award of funds to achieve varied aims in fostering broader adoption of clean vehicles and installation of supporting infrastructure.

        Joseph Bebon for NGT News November 7, 2017 - Sparq Natural Gas, Timmons Oil Co., Dericks Leasing & Financial Co, and J-W Power officially broke ground on a public-access CNG fueling station at 13003 E Admiral Pl Tulsa, OK. According to Sparq, the station will feature the installation of J-W Power s PowerFill technology, a patented compressor designed with heavy-duty trucks in mind, to speed up the fueling process.

        The PowerFill technology increases flow rates without increasing horsepower and significantly increases the use of on-site storage – particularly when combined with Sparq s massive investment in CNG storage – and enhances the customer experience. The Tusla station will include two 150 hp J-W PowerFill compressors; CP Industries natural gas storage equipment; two high-flow, heavy-duty CNG nozzles; and two light-duty CNG nozzles.

        In line with the Oklahoma First Energy Plan, this station provides a critical link in the build-out of alternative fuel corridors of natural gas stations across Oklahoma and is strategically located along the I-44 CNG Corridor, linking St. Louis and Dallas, according to Sparq.

        Oklahoma Secretary of Energy and Environment Michael Teague, who spearheads the state s energy programs, noted, Expanding the use of natural gas fueling infrastructure is a great example of how we can use Oklahoma s tremendous natural resources to both promote our energy industry and improve our air quality.

        The Tulsa station marks Sparq s 10th CNG station across its multi-state network and the company s fifth in Oklahoma:

            29 May 2020 - Merkley Announces $3.5 Million for Salem Transit Electric Buses

            Salem Area Mass Transit District (presently 50/50 CNG/diesel) will receive over $3.5 million in grant funding for the purchase of electric transit buses and the acquisition of necessary supporting facilities.

            Senator Merkley has been a consistent advocate for a full transition to 100% emission-free vehicles by 2040.


            The above is good example of fake news. Ridership on Oregon's capitol transit was COMPLETELY SUSPENDED 2 months prior to the above campaign website press release:
