Iowa's first CNG station will open in May

“The benefits of using CNG as a transportation fuel are simple but substantial,” said Jim Huyser from NatGas Services. “Fleet owners will have a new opportunity in Central Iowa to lower their fuel costs significantly. The station in Grimes will be able to fuel vehicles of all sizes, including personal vehicles, small and large fleets, buses and semi-trucks. And the location is conveniently located at the crossroads of I-80 and I-35.”

Natural gas provider Black Hills Energy has been involved with the planning and construction of the fueling station. “The price for compressed natural gas is currently about half the cost of a gasoline gallon. Saving money at the pump is on everyone’s mind and this station introduces a solution,” said Tim Hess, natural gas vehicle manager at Black Hills Energy.

Both companies will conduct a natural gas vehicle workshop for fleet owners, fleet managers and policy makers, on Friday, April 20, at the Grimes Community Center.
