Hardin County residents, administrators, and state representatives coming together at Heritage Cooperative for ground breaking. Planning is now over as Heritage breaks ground on an $8 million project, that on top of creating a two million gallon liquid fertilizer storage tank, would build a fueling station that would offer CNG (Compressed Natural Gas).
David George, with Petroleum CNG, is excited to bring natural gas to Hardin County, his companies primary location choice for development.
Heritage has a partnership with Precision Strips Trucking, who's trucks are capable of driving on the CNG fuel. CNG fuel burns 23 percent cleaner for particulates than diesel. Congressman Latta was happy to be a part of the ceremony on Friday, as he believes it's a good investment for Hardin County, the state of Ohio, and the country as a whole.
The $8 million project has an estimated completion date of Spring 2014. The gas station will offer CNG, E-85 Ethanol, unleaded fuel and diesel.
