Washington Gas and Trillium CNG Launch Public CNG Station in Maryland
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the second of three local area public CNG stations by Washington Gas Light (Washington Gas). The new station is located in Forestville, Maryland, and will be operated and maintained by Trillium CNG. Another CNG station, also a partnership between Washington Gas and Trillium CNG, recently opened in Frederick, Md., and a third station is planned for the District of Columbia.
“We are committed to empower communities to make smart energy choices with environmental benefits—the Forestville compressed natural gas station is a key step in expanding the availability of clean and efficient CNG,” said Lou Hutchinson, Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer of WGL Holdings (WGL), the parent company of Washington Gas.
“The advantages of CNG reinforce Maryland’s policies to lower energy bills, create jobs, address environmental and climate impacts, and promote energy independence,” said Christopher Rice, Transportation Program Manager and Clean Cities Coordinator, Maryland Energy Administration.
The Forestville CNG station will accept all major credit and fuel cards and will be open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
