IGS CNG Services Partners with City of Dayton to Bring Compressed Natural Gas Fueling Station to the Area
DAYTON, OH– Today, IGS CNG Services announced its plans to construct and operate a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station in Dayton, Ohio. This station will service a growing number of Ohio businesses and citizens converting to natural gas vehicles (NGVs) as a way to save money and use a clean, Ohio fuel.
With construction set to begin this summer, this station marks the continuation of IGS CNG Services’ plans to develop the infrastructure necessary to support Ohio’s conversion to natural gas fueled vehicles. The station is located at the City of Dayton’s fueling station Department of Public Works - 1830 East Monument Avenue, Dayton, 45402 – at their existing fueling station on the city’s property. The station will have two dispensers with up to four hoses and its own canopy. This location will also be open to the public, bringing a clean, affordable, and domestic fuel to local business and residents.
The Department of Public Works and the City of Dayton have chosen IGS CNG Services as their partner due to the company’s experience working with other county and city municipalities, along with their expertise in building, owning, and operating CNG stations. The Dayton station will be the seventh (7th) station in the IGS CNG Services network that offers CNG to the public.
IGS CNG Services plans to develop a regional CNG fueling corridor and recently announced a plan to construct a CNG fueling station on I-75 in Findlay, Ohio. This planned corridor will service a growing number of businesses looking for easy access to CNG stations while traveling through the region.
“The City of Dayton is in the process of purchasing CNG-dedicated vehicles for our fleets, refuse and maintenance trucks in order to save on fueling costs, as CNG is approximately 40 percent cheaper than diesel,” states Fred Stovall, Public Works Director. “We will implement the inclusion of CNG vehicles gradually, but this CNG station will be extremely helpful in this initiative.”
“Our plan for a CNG fueling station responds to the emerging market demand in Ohio for fast, convenient refueling of CNG vehicles,” said Scott White, president of IGS Energy. “Natural gas offers an inexpensive and environmentally-friendly alternative to gasoline or diesel. Because natural gas is both abundant and produced domestically, vehicles fueled by natural gas are becoming an increasingly popular transportation option. This station will offer a convenient location and enable drivers to refuel in about the same time it would take at a conventional gasoline station.”
Overall, CNG is a cleaner burning alternative fuel to traditional fuels, emitting up to 30 percent less carbon dioxide, up to 75 percent less carbon monoxide and up to 90 percent less particulate matter than gasoline or diesel. The fuel also costs substantially less than the price of gasoline and is produced domestically, in states including Ohio. Currently, there is more than a 100-year natural gas supply in the United States alone.
