Oklahoma State Univ. Opens Natural Gas Fueling Facility

April 25, 2011

STILLWATER, OK - Oklahoma State University opened its first natural gas fueling station at a dedication ceremony on April 21. Governor Mary Fallin and OSU President Burns Hargis were among those in attendance.

According to the University, OSU has converted its entire fleet of transit buses and many fleet vehicles to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). Chris Hoffman, manager of transportation services, stated that OSU currently operates 18 transit buses and 15 dedicated CNG sedans. In addition, about 120 vehicles (pickups, vans, and sedans) are scheduled for conversions.

“This is a great example of how a large public entity like Oklahoma State University can make a real difference and be both fiscally and environmentally responsible,” said Governor Fallin. “By converting their vehicles to natural gas, OSU is saving the state money through lower fuel costs while promoting the use of a fuel that is abundant in the state of Oklahoma.”

The University expects the station will help reduce the University’s energy costs. The fueling site, operated by Clean Energy, will also be open to the public.
