ARKANSAS TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR TWO CNG STATIONS
The Arkansas Energy Office (AEO), a division of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, today announced that a total of $800,000 in rebates will be provided through the Gaseous Fuels Rebate Program for the installment of two CNG stations. The station operators to each receive a $400,000 credit are Love’s Travel Stop & Country
Store for a station located in West Memphis and Kum & Go for a station located in Springdale. A review panel of industry professionals and leaders rated applications based on factors including geography and project feasibility along with the manner in which the stations aligned with AEO’s goals for alternative fuels development in the state. The funds will become available as soon as the stations are open and the fuel is available for sale to the public. Both stations are anticipated to have CNG access available by late 2014.
