SoCalGas Opens CNG Refueling Station, USA

Southern California Gas (SoCalGas) unveiled its newly company-branded, public-access NGV refueling station in Los Angeles County.

Located at the company’s operating base at 44416 Division St. in the city of Lancaster, the retail station is open 24 hours a day and features a fast-fill dispenser to serve individual and fleet owners of NGVs, including sedans, vans, pickups, and school buses.

With the average price of natural gas at around $2 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE), drivers of natural gas vehicles can achieve annual cost savings up to 50 percent compared to gasoline, in addition to air quality benefits provided by NGVs.

“We are pleased to offer refueling services under the trusted Southern California Gas Company brand to anyone who wants to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas,” said Rodger Schwecke, vice president of customer solutions for SoCalGas. “We consider affordable, abundant, domestically produced natural gas as the energy of possibility and a fuel that can power a clean environment and propel our nation toward energy independence.”

The new SoCalGas refueling station features two natural gas dispenser hoses served by a powerful natural gas compressor for improved fill speed and increased reliability. In addition, modern dispensing nozzles can be operated with one hand, while new overhead canopies protect customers from sun and rain. Energy-efficient LED signage enables motorists to compare natural gas fuel prices, and drought-tolerant landscaping adds environmentally friendly appeal.

SoCalGas currently operates 19 CNG refueling stations to serve its own utility fleet of more than 1,000 SoCalGas NGVs, with 11 of these stations open to the general public.
