Tue, Aug 20th, 2013

The City of Columbus plans to build a second compressed natural gas fueling station scheduled to open in March of 2014. The new station will service the City's northern refuse fleet operation, which has more than 65 vehicles, its Planning and Operations Division, which has more than 45 vehicles, and other City divisions. Construction on the station is set to begin in August 2013, according to Kelly Reagan, Fleet Administrator for the City. The new station will be built on a 1.3 acre parcel zoned to also permit publicly accessible fueling.

Reagan told Government Fleet, a sister publication of HDT, that the Fleet Division's role, as part fo the Finance Deprtment, is to meet the goals and targets outlined in Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman's Green Fleet Action Plan, which is designed to reduce the City's carbon footprint and save tax payers close to $2 million per year by 2020 (based on current diesel prices). The city of Columbus expects to be displacing over 1.1 milion gallons of diesel annually by 2020.
