Lower cost, alternative fuel

Gunnison County is taking steps toward a future of less petroleum and more alternative fuels. The idea of converting fleets to natural gas came from the Board of County Commissioners’ 2013 strategic plan, which lists numerous ways the county is working to protect the environment. The goal for Gunnison, according to John Cattles, director of facilities and grounds for the county, is to have a privately owned, publicly accessible, for-profit compressed natural gas (CNG) station so individuals and businesses in Gunnison County or with fleets that pass through Gunnison can take advantage of lower cost, alternative fuel. “The station will be fast-fill, so it will be much like going to a regular gas station and filling up,” Cattles said.
