Memphis Light, Gas and Water will host the “CNG from Sea to Shining Sea Road Rally,” presented by the American Public Gas Association and NGVAmerica, on Friday, June 3, at 3 p.m. at its public compressed natural gas (CNG) filling station at 3071 S. Center Road.
The coast-to-coast tour will showcase a fleet of CNG vehicles as they travel through 13 cities, from Long Beach, California, to Washington, D.C., from May 30 to June 10. The purpose of the rally is to demonstrate the viability of natural gas as an alternative fuel source and to educate the public about the benefits of natural gas vehicles (NGVs).
MLGW’s participation in the tour is another example of the company’s ongoing dedication to clean, affordable energy sources like natural gas. MLGW opened its South CNG Filling Station, the second owned by the company, in 2015.
MLGW operates a fleet of nearly 100 natural gas vehicles and is equipped to service other companies that utilize NGVs. To learn more about MLGW’s commercial natural gas services, visit mlgw.com/commercial/CNG-NGVs.
