GAIN Secures $500,000 Grant to Build CNG Station in Maryland
GAIN Clean Fuel has been awarded the Maryland Natural Gas Refueling Station Grant by the Maryland Energy Administration. The grant proposal was submitted by Leonardo Academy on behalf of GAIN. The grant award, totaling approximately $500,000, will support GAIN Clean Fuel’s construction of a CNG fueling station in Baltimore, Maryland.
GAIN has partnered with Northeast Foods of Baltimore (NEF), a key supplier of buns to McDonald’s restaurants since 1965, to provide two fast-fill dual-hose dispensers near NEF’s Baltimore distribution facility. The station will provide CNG to NEF’s fleet of delivery trucks and will also be open to the public.
Leonardo Academy is working with GAIN Clean Fuel to procure funding in multiple states in order to promote the use of CNG nationwide. Last week, funding for two new GAIN CNG stations in Pennsylvania was announced.
