Stations must use fast fill dispensers that refuel vehicles at a rate of at least 8 gallons per minute. Stations must be strategically located along transportation corridors, open to the public 24/7, accessible all year round, and well lit for all weather conditions.

• Successful applicants must propose a location that is of strategic importance to extending the range and reach of NGV’s along transportation corridors, such as major highways, shipping routes and population centers. The strategic importance of the location shall be clearly outlined in the submitted application.

• Applicants must be able to secure property rights, easements, right of way and access to property as necessary and supply accompanying documentation (e.g. a letter of commitment) with the completed grant application.

• Stations shall be operable and accessible to the public on a 24/7 basis and contain adequate lighting for all weather conditions.

• Stations shall be located such that they remain operable and accessible year round as well as maintained to be free of both man made and natural obstructions.
