Grant to fuel compressed natural gas development in Oklahoma, Arkansas
Clean Cities chapters in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Arkansas will share a $750,000 alternative fuel grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
She said the Arkansas chapter will formulate criteria for the state to license mechanics to work on CNG vehicles, while ensuring the necessary training is available.
The groups, dubbed the Interstate 40 Collaboration, had asked for more than $900,000.
Webber said the groups must figure out how to split up the Energy Department funds, but she is confident it will be money well spent.
“This will make a genuine impact on people using alternative fuels,” she said.
