A new natural gas fueling station will be developed by the end of the year through Paso Robles Waste & Recycle Inc.
The Paso Robles City Council recently approved the public-access project.
Compressed natural gas is an alternative fuel that produces cleaner emissions, quieter running engines and reduced fuel costs, officials said. Costs of the product weren’t immediately available.
JB Dewar Inc. also has a natural gas fueling station at 75 Prado Road in San Luis Obispo, according to the California Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition’s website, www.cngvc.org. As of 2011, the most recent data available, the San Luis Obispo station was the only one in the county.
Construction of the Paso Robles facility is slated to begin this month and be completed in December. It will be located next to the waste company’s headquarters off Highway 46 East at Combine Street and Wallace Drive.
“The name of the facility, 3G CNG, comes from three generations of the Gomer Family serving the community of Paso Robles since 1957,” according to Paso Robles Waste’s Facebook page.
