The City of Little Rock announces the opening of its
CNG Fueling Station
The City of Little Rock will open its first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station, located at 501 Ferry Street, in March 2014. The station will provide CNG fueling services to the general public, public and private fleets and CLR units. Future plans include the installation of conversion kits, equipping the station with electric chargers and using the location to perform maintenance services for CLR vehicles.
This will be the seventh CNG station in Arkansas that is available for public use. Citizens will have an accessible fueling option here in the City of Little Rock.
The station’s fast-fill compressor will allow a 100-gallon tank to fill in ten minutes or less.
The CLR has invested over $1 million dollars into this project. Additional funding sources for the station include a $235,000 grant from the Arkansas Department of Energy Office and a $100,000 grant from Southwestern Energy.
It is the City’s goal to actively contribute to a greener community and provide cost effective methods for cutting the City’s fuel bill. The City takes pride in its ability to offer private citizens and fleets that travel in and through Little Rock this opportunity to cut fuel costs.
