City of Dublin Opens New CNG Station

July 03, 2012

DUBLIN, OHIO – More than 150 people attended the City of Dublin’s new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station grand opening/dedication June 28 at the City’s fleet facility.

CNG vehicles were on display from the City of Dublin, City of Columbus, IGS Energy, Stanley Steemer, and Smith’s Dairy.

Dublin Mayor Tim Lecklider acknowledged the public and private partners that were instrumental in bringing the CNG station to Dublin, including Dublin-based IGS Energy, the station’s gas provider, who contributed $275,000 to the project; Clean Fuels Ohio who helped secure the $1.5 million grant from the Department of Energy; and the City of Columbus shared services agreement allowing both cities reciprocity to fuel vehicles and share fleet maintenance and training.

“The City of Dublin is committed to providing the highest quality of services to its residents and business community today, while continuing to plan for tomorrow’s generation as a green and sustainable community,” said Mayor Lecklider. “This CNG station will reduce carbon emissions by as much as 90 percent. It is estimated the initial infusion of 44 CNG vehicles will be equivalent to taking more than 180 cars off the road.”

The City of Dublin CNG fueling facility will be open to the public, other municipalities, and corporate fleets.
