Natural gas station opens in Niagara Falls

From Great Lakes United

A new compressed natural gas fueling station is open in Niagara Falls.

Located downtown near Niagara Reservation State Park, the station will refuel the park's vintage-looking scenic trolleys and other state-owned alternative fuel vehicles.

New York state has 2,158 alternative fuel vehicles in use with more than 1,450 powered by compressed natural gas.

The alternative fuel trolleys made their debut at the park during Memorial Day weekend. The 60-seat vintage style vehicles operate year-round throughout the park and city. Ten trolleys provide interpretation and transport for patrons within the park and connect with USA Niagara Link's five trolleys offering a route for visitors and residents between hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and the American falls.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority funded the purchase of the 15 trolleys with a $2.7 million grant. The fueling station cost less than $310,000 to build using funds from the Clean Water/Clean Air Bond Act.

All life is sacred.
Water is life.

Peace, Power and Righteousness to all nations. We need to understand the cultural foundation of these terms. Peace is not just the absence of war, it is a way of being that promotes deep love and caring. Power is not a military power, it is the strength that comes from social and political unity when people are treating each other fairly. Righteousness is the equity and justice applied to all.
