Nat G CNG Solutions based in Houston, Texas announced that it has introduced its new Nat G 500 Series compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle fueling station for mid-sized fleets, priced starting at $59,900 after a federal tax credit.
"The Nat G 500 Series is a fully integrated fueling station on a skid," said Balu Balagopal, co-CEO of Nat G CNG Solutions. "It is available in time for fill and fast fill configurations, and is the first system of its kind to break the $100,000 price barrier. With the 500 Series, medium-sized fleets can enjoy the cost savings and convenience of having a fuel station right at their own facility."
The Nat G 500 Series delivers up to 23 gasoline gallon equivalents (gge) of CNG per hour when configured as a time fill unit, and is also available in fast fill to provide up to 80 gge of instant fill capacity. The entire system comes pre-assembled and can be skid-mounted to allow for easy transportation and simple installation.
The Nat G 500 Series is built around a world-class compressor provided by Sauer Compressors USA. Sauer's compressors are known for their high reliability and durability and are widely used aboard US Navy ships.
"We are enthusiastic about Nat G introducing its new skid-mounted CNG fueling system to the US market," said Don Eaton, president and CEO of Sauer Compressors USA. "Sauer Compressors offer the performance and reliability fleet customers need. We have been pleased to work with Nat G to develop a fully-integrated fueling system product that makes private CNG refueling truly affordable for mid-sized fleet customers."
The Nat G 500 Series is available on a zero-dollar, five-year lease starting as low as 25 cents per gallon or $1,200 per month for a time fill unit. A typical customer can produce CNG fuel for around $1.00 per gallon using the Nat G 500 Series (actual fuel cost depends on the customer's natural gas and electricity rates).
In addition to the Nat G 500 Series, Nat G CNG Solutions also offers larger units like its Nat G 1000 Series and full-sized commercial stations. It is also the exclusive provider in Texas and Louisiana of the Simpkins Energy SE200 system, which offers low-cost fueling for smaller businesses and fleets.
