“New, innovative infrastructure like this provides alternatives in how drivers fuel their day – and makes it easier for us all to reduce our carbon footprint and play a larger role in our campaign to combat climate change,” said Congressman Paul D. Tonko.
Saratoga Springs, New York (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
American Natural Gas (ANG), a premier distributor of alternative motor fuels, is excited to announce that it will unveil the very first public compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station north of Albany, New York in January 2016. Currently under construction, the facility will be just off of I-87, conveniently located halfway between New York City and Montreal within the W.J. Grande Industrial Park, Saratoga Springs.
“We’re proud to run our business from Saratoga Springs and are excited to be building this station in our home town,” said Drew West, CEO of ANG. “We believe this will be an opportunity for those that desire to switch to a cleaner, more reliable fuel solution, but don’t have the luxury or budget to build their own infrastructure.”
ANG has guided regional fleets, such as Tops Friendly Markets in Buffalo and Casella Waste Systems in Rutland, Vermont, through their conversions to CNG. In return, the fleets have reduced their emissions, carbon footprint, and dependency on foreign oil.
“New, innovative infrastructure like this provides alternatives in how drivers fuel their day – and makes it easier for us all to reduce our carbon footprint and play a larger role in our campaign to combat climate change,” said Congressman Paul D. Tonko. “With Saratoga Springs-based ANG, the Capital Region has expanded the leadership role we have taken in recent decades to expand the green-collar job market and show the nation what it means to think outside the barrel.”
As Natural Gas Vehicles for America reports, natural gas is the cleanest burning commercially available alternative fuel today and its use as a transportation fuel is improving the air quality and the health of communities across the country. Overall costs to operate heavy-duty trucks on CNG are significantly less than running the same trucks on gasoline or diesel fuel.
The W.J. Grande Industrial Park Station is the third New York State station announced by ANG in the past two months and the second public one. It will become an important point along ANG’s growing corridor of public CNG stations in the Northeast and extend the range of travel for CNG-converted fleets.
As ANG designed the station, it selected top-of-the line equipment with regional long haul, public transportation, and return-to-base fleets in mind. The station will have two cold weather-reliable 200 HP Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer. It will feature three fueling lanes and consumer-friendly Bennett CRIND dispensers that can accommodate Class 8 (WB-67) semi tractor-trailers.
The station is under construction on an ANG-owned parcel, 34 Cady Hill Blvd., Saratoga Springs, that the company will continue to own, operate, and maintain. Those interested in fuel savings programs or conversion information are encouraged to reach out to ANG by calling 866-264-6220.
