Natural Gas Fueling Stations
Pensacola Energy operates three CNG stations, two of which are open to the public with a gasoline gallon equivalent price of $2.05. Open 24/7 and well lit, the stations make for an excellent waypoint when traveling across the Florida panhandle. Our stations offer full redundancy reliability. Both stations offer full access to all classes of vehicles with a special emphasis on semi trailers. Methods of payment include Visa, Mastercard, Wright Express, Fleet One, Voyager Fuelman, Gascard and Discover.

On October 3, 2012, the City of Pensacola, Pensacola Energy (PE) and the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) unveiled Pensacola’s first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station, located at 6672 Pine Forest Road (3.2 miles south of I-10), located on the west side of Escambia County. PE partnered with ECUA, Escambia County’s water, sewer and sanitation service, to serve natural gas vehicles operated by the ECUA and Escambia County.
“This station marks a new day for the City of Pensacola, Pensacola Energy and ECUA,” said Mayor Ashton Hayward. “In this era of budget constraints, those of us in government must continually look for opportunities to generate non-tax revenue and work together to improve our operations.” These cleaner-burning natural gas vehicles will cost less to fuel and maintain.
Natural gas-powered vehicles have substantially lower emissions and maintenance costs than vehicles using gasoline or diesel fuel.
