Kanawha County Developing Infrastructure for CNG Vehicle Fleet
January 8, 2013
The Kanawha County Commission is accepting bids for the development of a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling port to service the County’s CNG-powered Chevrolet Tahoe and future CNG-powered fleet vehicles, reports the Charleston Gazette. Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper stated that he would like “a good portion of the fleet to go toward natural gas.” Local government and business leaders in Kanawha County created the “Kanawha Converts” consortium in January 2012 to work on initiatives to convert local fleets to CNG in order to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits offered by the cheaper and cleaner-burning fuel.
