SDG&E Completes Improvements to CNG Fueling Station in San Diego
SDG&E, the public utility serving San Diego, California, has completed upgrades to its Miramar CNG fueling station. The CNG station boasts more powerful compressors to improve fill speed and reliability, and expanded tanks for higher fuel capacity, along with a new canopy and energy efficient lighting.
The station, which is open to the public, has been operated by SDG&E for 20 years. The refurbishment was initiated after gathering feedback from customers. The suggestions were used to plan a major overhaul of all CNG fueling stations operated by both SDG&E and SoCalGas across Southern California.
In addition to energy efficiency and reliability upgrades, the station off Miramar Road is now more visible to approaching motorists with bolder pricing signage near the street. SDG&E fuels its CNG vehicles at this location as well as fleets of public buses, refuse trucks, taxis and other transportation vehicles from across the county.
SDG&E says its other two CNG fueling stations in Kearny Mesa and Carlsbad will also undergo upgrades in the near future. In addition, SDG&E will be expanding the number of new public-access CNG stations across its service territory to keep pace with growing customer demand.
