SoCalGas unveils branded, public-access compressed natural gas refueling station

17 April 2014

Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) unveiled its newly company-branded, public-access natural gas vehicle (NGV) refueling station in Los Angeles County. Located at the company’s operating base at 44416 Division St. in the city of Lancaster, the retail station is open 24 hours a day and features a fast-fill dispenser to serve individual and fleet owners of NGVs, including sedans, vans, pickups, and school buses.

The new SoCalGas refueling station features two natural gas dispenser hoses served by a natural gas compressor for improved fill speed and increased reliability. In addition, modern dispensing nozzles can be operated with one hand, while new overhead canopies protect customers from sun and rain. Energy-efficient LED signage enables motorists to compare natural gas fuel prices.

With the average price of natural gas at around $2 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE), drivers of natural gas vehicles can achieve annual cost savings up to 50% compared to gasoline, in addition to the air quality benefits provided by NGVs.

SoCalGas currently operates 19 CNG refueling stations to serve its own utility fleet of more than 1,000 SoCalGas NGVs, with 11 of these stations open to the general public.
