Dallas Links to the New Natural Gas Highway
Dec 09, 2013 04:50PM
A new highway of natural gas refueling infrastructure running coast-to-coast and border-to-border is being built and continues to expand, and the Dillon Clean Energy Station has opened at 4600 Irving Boulevard, in Dallas, as part of what Clean Energy calls America’s Natural Gas Highway.
Funded in part by a grant awarded to the North Central Texas Council of Governments and PAM Transport Inc. through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the station is operated by Clean Energy through a partnership with Dillon Transport.
The station provides a convenient refueling point for public and private sector companies using natural gas to fuel their fleets for making deliveries in the region and driving across the country to bring goods to market. Frito-Lay, Central Freight Lines, FedEx Freight, Dillon Transport and PAM Transport will use the facility, among others. Public sector customers include Irving, Dallas and Dallas County. The grant is also assisting with implementation of biodiesel, ethanol and electric infrastructure, as well as electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid vehicles.
