Two more Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations will open next week – one in Kersey and one in Fort Lupton – bringing the total number of public CNG stations in Weld County to four.
“We are excited to reach this milestone,” said Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer, who formed the Weld County Natural Gas Coalition in 2009. “One of the goals of the Coalition was to create an alternative fuel corridor between the Denver metro area and Wyoming. With the opening of these two stations, Weld County and the Natural Gas Coalition have reached that goal.”
On Tuesday, December 18, 2012, the Coalition will celebrate the opening of the Fort Lupton station with a grand opening ceremony at 2:00 p.m. The station, owned by ZeitEnergy, will be the first public CNG station to be located in the southeastern part of the county. On Thursday, December 20, 2012, a fourth CNG station, also owned by ZeitEnergy, will open in Kersey with a 2:00 p.m.
