Town Hall Meetings Planned to Demonstrate Demand for More CNG

Town Hall Meetings Planned to Demonstrate Demand for More CNG
Secretary of Energy & Environment Michael Teague and representatives from the Governor's Office will join local legislators, city officials, the State Chamber of Oklahoma and local Chambers of Commerce for a series of upcoming town hall meetings to discuss ways to accelerate the deployment of compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling infrastructure throughout the state. The meetings will take place on Thursday, January 30th in Antlers; Friday, February 7th in Durant; and Friday, February 14th in Alva.

The State of Oklahoma currently has more than 550 CNG vehicles in state fleets, and nearly 400 of which were purchased in the last year at reduced prices as a result of Governor Fallin's 23-state effort to encourage the production of more affordable and functional CNG vehicles. As state and local governments work toward transitioning fleets to CNG, additional CNG refueling stations are needed. The town hall meetings will be focused on building support among state and local leaders, public and private fleets and the general public to demonstrate to private fuel retailers the demand for CNG in communities currently without access to CNG infrastructure.
