Georgia says yes to NG fuel stations

Atlanta Gas Light (AGL) has received approval from state utility regulators to build a network of compressed natural gas fueling stations across the state. AGL, the state’s largest natural gas company, intends to construct 5 to 10 stations in metro Atlanta and then add more statewide. The company will begin working on proposals for the CNG projects and hopes to sign contracts with private investors by spring/summer 2012. Construction could begin as early as the end of 2012. AGL would use approximately USD 12 million of a public universal service fund to encourage private investors to build CNG fueling stations. The Georgia Public Service Commission voted 4-1 to approve AGL’s request, which underwent many changes and debates since it was first proposed several months ago. ASGL will use 75% of the money for CNG stations that are accessible to large fleets that have a contract with the station as well as smaller fleets and individuals who drive CNG-fueled cars. The remainder of the money would be used for CNG stations limited to municipal buses and garbage companies that contract with local governments.
