Grants support compressed natural gas stations

A proposed public compressed natural gas station in Rifle got a big boost today when the state announced it would receive a $675,285 grant.

The Governor’s Energy Office also announced a second federal Recovery Act-supported grant of $120,000 for the city of Grand Junction to complete a CNG fueling station. That station would be for use by city vehicles that run on the fuel, as well as other fleets.

The city has bought four garbage trucks that run on the fuel, and Grand Valley Transit is buying two buses that will benefit from the fueling station.

The Rifle station would help address a lack of public compressed natural gas fueling stations along Interstate 70 in western Colorado.
