    California City Approves New CNG Station - April 17, 2009
    On Tuesday, the City Council of Glendale, California gave final approved a new 19,000-square-foot CNG fueling station for south Glendale. The facility, to be built adjacent to the city’s Glendale Amtrak/Metrolink Transportation Center, is expected to save the city tens of thousands of dollars a year in fueling costs for a growing fleet of municipal CNG-powered vehicles. While the private turnkey facility will be immediately available to the public, it is expected to primarily service larger municipal fleet vehicles — including buses, refuse trucks and street sweepers. The city’s 47 CNG-powered vehicles have been traveling the roughly five-mile round trip to a natural gas fueling station in Burbank since Glendale lost its own facility in 2006 to a new flyover extension project off the Ventura Freeway. In September, the City Council entered into a $211,000 contract with Clean Energy to build the private operation. Clean Energy will pay the majority of the bill for construction and operations of the facility for up to 20 years, according to the agreement. Construction on the station is scheduled to begin this summer in time for a grand opening in November.
