The Lancaster County Natural Gas Authority has added four compressed natural gas service trucks to its fleet, as well as a CNG fueling station at its facility on Kershaw Camden Highway.
“Lancaster County is taking a small step forward into the future, but it is the first step that will build momentum for a giant leap forward,” said Tim Thornton, general manager for the natural gas authority. “We now have a small fueling station, but large enough to give us a foretaste of what will surely come later, a full-scale fast fill fueling station for public use.”
There are about 112,000 CNG vehicles in the United States.
