Local business leaders and representatives of the Carrollton Exempted Village Schools (CEVS) gathered on November 17, 2015, for the Grand Opening of a new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Station in Carrollton. CEVS Superintendent Dr. David Quattrochi cut the ceremonial ribbon at the station alongside CEVS Director of Programs, Ed Robinson.
The CNG station and associated POWER Center, an innovative educational laboratory at CEVS, were built with the $4.06 million provided to CEVS by the state of Ohio’s Straight A Grant program, aimed to promote academic achievement and economic efficiencies within local schools and districts. The station will support local demand for CNG, including the fleet of efficient natural gas powered CEVS school buses funded by the grant.
“None of this would have been possible without Advanced Power,” Ed Robinson declared after the ceremony, referencing CEVS’s partnership with Advanced Power and Carroll County Energy in the grant writing process.
