Norwich Public Utilities ready to build natural gas fueling station
Norwich - Norwich Public Utilities announced today that preliminary design work on a new natural gas fueling station has been completed, and the project is slated for construction at the existing Shell gas station at 168 West Town St. NPU will host a public informational meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the utility headquarters, 16 S. Golden St., to discuss the project.
The Federal Highway Administration will provide 80 percent of the construction cost under the Surface Transportation Program administered by the state Department of Transportation. NPU will pay 20 percent of the construction cost.
The proposed station will consist of a fuel dispenser located on a concrete slab with overhead canopy, compressors, above-ground cascade storage tank assembly and essential equipment required to fuel vehicles with compressed natural gas. A paved, dual-vehicle access lane will be installed to allow easy vehicle access.
