Piedmont Natural Gas Opens New Facility, Site of Future CNG Station
Piedmont Natural Gas celebrated the opening of a new $8 million Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)-eligible facility that will be the future site of a CNG station. Piedmont says the new fueling facility will take the place of Piedmont’s existing CNG station on Wilkes Road.
“Piedmont Natural Gas is proud to serve Fayetteville and Cumberland County, and our new customer contact and resource center is a tangible symbol of our commitment to and investment in the communities we serve,” said Frank Yoho, head of gas operations for Piedmont Natural Gas, a subsidiary of Duke Energy.
The new facility will be home to a customer contact center and resource center, and will also include space for training, a fabrication shop and warehouse. A 9,000-square-foot utility building and storage shed are also located on the site.
For the Fayetteville project, Piedmont opted for the inherently more sustainable choice of renovating an existing structure rather than new construction, reusing and recycling building materials when possible and reducing raw material usage.
