The City of Hamilton, Ohio, celebrated the grand opening of its first public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station on Dec. 19, the first in the Cincinnati area.

In addition to individual and private fleet use, the station will be used to fuel the city’s five CNG vehicles, reports the Journal-News. The city plans to buy a CNG bucket truck next year.

The project cost $2.4 million; $700,000 of this was paid for using grant funding.The fast-fill station has two dispensers with two hoses each and will be expandable to double that should demand grow.

"The overall economic benefit of this technology to companies and residents is outstanding. Hamilton has had the lowest natural gas rates in the state for 18 years and that is going to be reflected in the price per GGE [gasoline gallon equivalent] at our station," said Mark Murray, the city's senior project manager for the station, in a release.
