Clean Cities: Searcy, Arkansas
Our success story this week takes us to Searcy, Arkansas, where these trucks are pulling in and fueling up on compressed natural gas. Krug energy opened up this CNG station about a year ago, to serve the growing natural gas needs in the natural state. Along with refueling their own CNG semi fleet, the pumps are open to the public, something the city of Searcy takes advantage of. It’s where their new CNG refuse trucks fill up.
In 2015, the station pumped out 735,000 gallons of CNG…all at a steady price.
RUSH KRUG: “It does not fluctuate like diesel at all. It’s very nice just to be able to know what that cost is going to be pretty much every month.”
Krug energy has worked closely with Arkansas clean cities, and received $400,000 from the state’s gaseous fuels rebate program, helping to ensure a cleaner Arkansas future for years to come.
