One, he said, "there were no maintenance funds and they needed to upgrade the compressors and it was difficult to find parts for them."
Aside from few fueling stations, another reason for slack CNG vehicle sales is that their range is limited. Konesky's CNG Dodge truck went about 120 miles on a tank. The CNG Honda Civic is rated at about 200 miles, but Consumer Reports in 2008 found it only went 130 miles before the low fuel light came on.
"Is there any reason we do not have compressed natural gas available in Reno? It is available at Tahoe airport for the public.
Well, it has for about 25 years.
Pete Konesky, program manager for the Nevada State Office of Energy, was at Sierra Pacific (now NV Energy) in 1986 when he encouraged the company to put in a compressed natural gas station and to convert part of its fleet to CNG powered vehicles.
Faye Andersen of NV Energy, which supplied the station with natural gas, said one reason for the closure was "lack of business."
"This issue is somehow suspiciously absent from discussion, debate or any form of public information by Reno, Carson City and NV Energy!"
In Nevada, a CNG vehicle can't easily be used for travel outside a metropolitan area Converse Uk Trainers
because towns are so far apart and even if they were closer, they would still have to actually have pump stations installed, which is expensive.
Dick put the price at about $1 million.
For comparison to Reno's 66 ppb, the 2011 ozone number gathered by the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Converse One Star On Feet Management District was 95 ppb. Sacramento exceeded the federal ozone air quality standard last year 40 days, as opposed to Reno's two.
So if they're good for reducing ozone, why is Reno not discussing it, debating it, trying to implement it?
Chrysler, Ford and GM plan to offer CNG trucks in 2013, which will likely renew interest for organizations with vehicle fleets.
any funding mechanism we don't have a state income tax and thus we can't give an income tax credit for using natural gas."
Has smoggy Reno ignored natural gas vehicles
"General Motors had factory conversions. They had a fuel tank rust problem and they were afraid the tanks would rupture so they pulled all their vehicles back and destroyed them," Konesky added.
A letter to the editor by Joe Hall of Reno said:
Two, "we don't have that many vehicles available to create a baseload here in Reno," he said. (A baseload is a minimum number of vehicles needed to sustain the effort.)
"No, I do not but I don't disagree that natural gas fueled vehicles are good for reducing ozone," he said.
Does Dick think Reno's smoggy?
He added another reason the state has had a hard time adopting CNG: "I guess our last big obstacle is that Nevada doesn't have Converse Shoes Leather White
Three, except for Honda, the big automakers no longer make CNG vehicles. Lack of sales was one reason.
The EPA sets a standard of 75 parts per billion of ozone in the air as what cities need to meet in order not to be smoggy. (Ozone is the main chemical constituent in smog and therefore is used as an indicator Converse Leather Brown
Among others who tried CNG vehicles here were Washoe County, the sheriff's office, the school district, the post office and the Regional Transportation Commission. (The RTC has 50 vehicles using CNG and the school district 7; both have their own private pump stations.)
Let's start with whether Reno is smog burdened.
Konesky delved deeper into the reasons it wasn't successful.
"One would think in our smog burdened city that we would hear calls for change. Better fuel economy, etc., etc. Far less pollution from CNG and CNG cars don't even need to be smog checked!
Breaking news: A new public compressed natural gas fueling station could be two to three years away in Reno, thanks to the RTC.
In the early 1990s, the State Office of Energy upgraded the Reno pump to make it a public station. It was on Ohm Place in Reno but closed earlier this year.
When asked if Northern Nevada has ignored CNG, Brandmueller said, "We've done everything we could do, at least for the moment.
Kevin Dick, director of the air quality management division of Washoe County Health District, said the county's ozone value was 66 parts per billion for 2011, well below the federal level, and it topped the federal standard only on June 25 (76 ppb) and June 26 (81 ppb).
