The stations, which have each received $1 million in funding, are located in Napanee at the Flying J, as well as London and Windsor, and will enable heavy-duty truck fleets to travel along Ontario’s Highway 401.

“Natural gas as a transportation fuel is the best solution to deliver emission reductions associated with diesel fuel from our highways, roads and communities,” said vice-president of sales for Clean Energy Fuels Corp., Chad Lindholm.

“Alternative fuels like compressed natural gas are a key part of fighting climate change and showing that the environment and the economy go hand in hand. This is great news for the trucking industry and for a cleaner environment for future generations”, said MP Mike Bossio in a press release.

The funding is part of Canadian government’s $182.5-million total investment to develop a coast-to-coast charging network for electric vehicles and to establish natural gas stations along key transportation routes and stations for hydrogen-powered vehicles in metropolitan centres.
