U.S. Gain Partners with H&S Bakery to Open CNG Station in Baltimore
U.S. Gain has completed a new CNG station in partnership with H&S Bakery, a bakery provider for McDonald’s and other fast-food restaurants. The fast-fill station is located at the intersection of I-95 and I-895 in Baltimore and is open to all CNG fleets and the public.
Located near their distribution center, the Baltimore station not only gives the H&S Bakery fleet a strategic fueling location, but also contributes to their own commitment to improve sustainability efforts.
“This is a great partnership and one we encourage other carriers to consider,” said Michael Jones from the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) and Maryland Cities Coalition. “Utilizing natural gas as a transportation fuel offers significant economic and air quality benefits. CNG emits fewer air pollutants than conventional diesel fuel, so everyone benefits.”
A $500,000 award from the Maryland Natural Gas Refilling Station Grant Program helped to fund the project.
