Two stations will each receive $400,000
Little Rock, AR -- The Arkansas Energy Office (AEO), a division of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, today announced a total of $800,000 in rebates will be provided to two fueling station operators. The station operators, which will be awarded the funds through the Gaseous Fuels Rebate Program, will install Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) equipment to provide public access to clean burning motor fuels.
Both stations are anticipated to have CNG access available by late 2014.
“CNG continues to play a large role in our efforts to build a sustainable economy,” said Grant Tennille, executive director of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. “These rebates provide one more way we can make the use of alternative fuels an option for Arkansans. I encourage Arkansas’s businesses and citizens to learn more about the benefits of buying or converting to a CNG vehicle.”
