Public Access CNG Station Opens in Central Florida
Integral Energy announced a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held for a new public access CNG station on the eve of the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, Tuesday, April 21. The CNG station is the result of a partnership between Dillon Transport, Integral Energy, The Mosaic Company and Trillium CNG. Florida Public Utilities and Tampa Electric will provide natural gas and electric utility services respectively. The station has three fueling positions and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We now have 100 trucks in Central Florida and are eager to continue expanding our services,” said Charles Musgrove, COO of Dillon Transport. “Jobs have been created through the construction and planning phases and will continue as we hire new truck drivers as well as people to maintain the property.”
Dillon Trucking will also offset more than three million gallons of diesel fuel per year by using natural gas.
For companies converting their fleets to natural gas, such as Dillon Trucking, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services offers a Natural Gas Fuel Fleet Vehicle Rebate to help with the costs associated with the conversion, purchase or lease for a minimum of five years. There are eligibility requirements and maximum rebates per vehicle, but each applicant may receive up to $250,000 per fiscal year.
