Compressed Natural Gas
Gov. Corbett was on hand to cut the ribbon. The Marcellus Shale is a major source of natural gas.
Nicholas DeBenedictis, CEO of Bryn Mawr-based Aqua America (at lectern in photo), says he is committed to transitioning several of the water company’s dump trucks and vans to compressed natural gas (CNG).
The conversion runs nearly $10,000 extra but the natural gas equivalant costs about $2 less than a gallon of gasoline, according to promoters.
There are only 24 compressed natural gas stations statewide in New Jersey. That was the point behind the hoopla as a new one opened up on Wednesday morning in Glassboro.
