U.S. Gain Partners with H&S Bakery to Bring GAIN Clean Fuel CNG Station to Baltimore
U.S. Gain announced that it 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. A $500,000 award from the Maryland Natural Gas Refilling Station Grant Program helped to fund the project.
“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. “CNG is produced regionally and throughout the U.S. and that contributes to a less volatile fuel price. In addition, CNG emits fewer air pollutants than conventional diesel fuel, so everyone benefits.”
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.
