A Grand Opening will be held on September 16, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Exit 12 of I-86/NY, Route 17, 3004 North Main St., Ext., Jamestown, NY. This is an exciting development for all of Western New York as this is the first natural gas fueling station in the Southern Tier. It is conveniently located for commercial, interstate and local users.

Clean and Green CNG Technologies Corp. was born 15 years ago when owner and CEO John A. Dietrick, III (a Western NY native) was distressed when the rising costs of petroleum fuel greatly affected the bottom line of his principal business, a construction firm, Diamond Builders Corp.

An entrepreneurial visionary, John created Clean and Green CNG Technologies Corp and actively began installing conversion kits into commercial trucks and fleets of all sizes to run on the less expensive, environmentally friendly compressed natural gas (CNG). A pioneer in the industry, John was the first Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) for Ford vehicles, continuing to convert vehicles throughout WNY and Pennsylvania.

The increasing number of CNG capable vehicles demands a conveniently located CNG fueling station. In 2015, Dietrick received support from the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority to assist in building a new CNG fueling station. He then teamed up with Knox Western Compressors of Erie, PA to design and build an oil-free, CNG fueling station. The site is unique in that Cummins Engine Plant, the leading U.S. manufacturer of 12-liter CNG engines, is located only minutes from the fueling station.

Already, most of the environmentally-conscious cities in Western New York and Pennsylvania have begun or completed conversion of their municipal vehicle fleets to CNG-fueled fleets, greatly reducing the global-warming effects of gas-fueled exhaust fumes.

Clean and Green CNG Technologies Corp thanks local businesses for their support, invites and welcomes all to come celebrate this important step forward in promoting a cleaner, more stable fueling option for the entire Southern Tier/Western New York area.
