American Natural Gas (ANG), a distributor of alternative motor fuels, has opened the first public compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station north of Albany, New York. The facility, featuring two fueling lanes that can accommodate Class 8 (WB-67) semi tractor-trailers, is just off of I-87, conveniently located halfway between New York City and Montreal.
“CNG can transform the transportation industry. But it takes a network of infrastructure to make it possible, and that’s where we come in,” said Drew West, CEO of ANG. “Having a station in Saratoga Springs is an exciting opportunity for our regional fleets and neighbors interested in switching to a cleaner, more reliable fuel solution.”
“New, innovative infrastructure like this provides alternatives in how drivers fuel their day – and makes it easier for us all to reduce our carbon footprint and play a larger role in our campaign to combat climate change,” said Congressman Paul D. Tonko.
“I am hopeful that many Saratoga-based fleets will consider switching to clean-burning natural gas, allowing them to reap the cost-savings and emission-reduction benefits of the fuel,” said Saratoga Springs Mayor Yepsen.
The station has two cold weather-reliable 200 HP Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer.
As an introductory offer, ANG will celebrate the opening by offering CNG for only $1.19 per gallon.
