SOUTH COAST AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT, CLEAN ENERGY ALTERNATIVE AND RENEWABLE FUEL INFRASTRUCTURE
The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), will install 8 publically accessible natural gas fueling stations throughout the South Coast Air Basin, in Coachella, West Covina, Fontana, Chino, Corona, Palm Springs, Lake Arrowhead, and Baldwin Park.. Several fleets have committed to using these stations, including a shuttle service company, a chauffeur town car company, a taxi company, and Kenworth heavy-duty goods movement trucks.
The project is underway. These stations will be built so that additional dispensers can be easily installed at the stations in the future to meet increased demand.
$7,499,350 from the project participants.
The estimated throughput for these eight stations is expected to reach 2.19 million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGE) in the first year alone, with the throughput total reaching approximately 16.4 million GGEs after just five years. With these estimates, the total GHG emission reduction is anticipated to reach 63,790 tons after five years of operation.
Most fleet stations are located in geographically and social-economically diverse areas, therefore providing lower priced, clean burning fuel to transit agencies and public consumers with natural gas vehicles. It is anticipated that a total of 88 green jobs will be created and/or sustained through this project, providing a tangible and immediate economic stimulus in the state.
