“We are glad the Town could partner with Clean Cities to expand our CNG fueling capacity and fleet. The continuing expansion of our Green Initiatives Program is important to the Town and with the new fast-fill CNG station, cost savings will be realized quickly,” said Richard J. Johnson, Town Manager of Glastonbury.
Air and Gas Technologies built the new station in Glastonbury at 300 Welles Street, which is co-located on the same property as the Glastonbury Senior Center.
“We are excited about this new fast-fill fleet station and fleet in the Town of Glastonbury,” stated Lee Grannis, Coordinator of the Greater New Haven Clean Cities Coalition and recipient of the USDOE grant. “This station represents the continuing commitment of the Town to cleaner transportation options and the addition of 14 CNG vehicles to the Town fleet will have an impact on reducing the use of petroleum and save the town money too,” Grannis added.
“We are thrilled to watch the Town of Glastonbury continue as a leader in the Greater Hartford area, promoting the importance of clean natural gas fuel and vehicles. Their commitment to clean energy is evident in their newest project which replaces their slow-fill station with a fast-fill station enabling them to expand their natural gas fleet. They are a wonderful example to other municipalities of how dedication to and belief in alternative fuels validates the positive results of using Alternative Fuels.” stated Craig Peters, Coordinator of the Capitol Clean Cities Coalition.
