SoCalGas Opens New Public CNG Station in Southern California
Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), along with local officials, business representatives and employees marked the opening of a new public CNG station in Pico Rivera, California. SoCalGas says the new CNG station extends the network of CNG stations across a key regional goods movement corridor and will provide owners and operators of natural gas-fueled trucks and other vehicles with a convenient place to fuel.
“Southern California is leading the nation’s clean energy revolution,” said Linda Sánchez, who represents the 38th District of California that includes Pico Rivera. “This new fueling station will improve public transportation for the region, grow our economy, and help our community fight air pollution.”
The new CNG station will help improve air quality by providing a more convenient location for CNG fueling and by helping to meet growing demand from commercial fleets for clean-burning natural gas.
“The MSRC was proud to provide $150,000 in Clean Transportation Funding to SoCalGas for the equipment, installation and other costs to help build this CNG station,” said Greg Pettis, chair of the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) and mayor pro-tem of Cathedral City, Calif. “This is the second SoCalGas station this year for which the MSRC has provided funding, so we are excited to help contribute to the continually expanding network of CNG fueling stations across the Southland.”
