  • New NGV Station for California - Porterville, California

    New NGV Station for California Town
    The city of Porterville, California (at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains) has unveiled a new NGV fueling station to serve its transit buses and public works vehicles. Equipped with 19 fill stations, the new $3.2 million facility will serve the growing number of vehicles that operate on CNG in the area. The station was funded with a $1.6 million federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Grant. Porterville has four CNG transit buses today, and $1.8 million in grants have funded five more CNG buses for the city to be delivered next year. In late 2006, the city opted to begin using CNG buses to meet the California Diesel Risk Reduction Plan. “Of all airborne carcinogens, diesel particulate matter makes up a little more than 70 percent,” spokesman for the California Air Resources Board Dimitri Stanich said. To minimize the toxic effects of diesel, the city chose CNG. Besides the time-fill dispensers, the new station is equipped with two fast fill dispensers (and a card reader) for the public. The price per gallon is less than $2. The city is working on contracts with Tulare County and the nearby city of Lindsay to share the facility.

    Commercial vehicles, transit/school buses and trash trucks will keep NGVs alive.
