Nopetro LLC opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel station on Sept. 25, part of a planned regional network that will allow area fleets to convert to CNG, according to a release from the company.

The facility, located on Leon County Schools property, is the product of a partnership between the public and private sectors. The school district is transforming its entire fleet of diesel-powered school buses to CNG, and other public and private consumers may also fuel their CNG vehicles at the station. A portion of each sale will benefit the school district.

Earlier this year, Jorge Herrera, CEO of Nopetro, told GF that Florida State University, Leon County, the City of Tallahassee, and the Florida Department of Transportation had expressed interest in using the facility.

The fueling station has three dispensers, with the ability to dispense fuel to six vehicles at a time.  Photo courtesy of Nopetro.

Nopetro identified 18 additional cities it is targeting over the next three years, including Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Fort Pierce, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Key Largo, Miami, Ocala, Orlando, Pensacola, Sarasota, St. Augustine, Tampa, and West Palm Beach in Florida; and Atlanta, Macon, and Savannah in Georgia.

Nopetro designs, builds, finances, operates and maintains turnkey natural gas fueling stations and supplies its customers with CNG and LNG fuel. The company also helps its customers obtain local, state, and federal incentives and grants and helps customers acquire and finance natural gas vehicles.
