ALBANY, N.Y. -- Students from the Capital Region BOCES visit National Grid's natural gas fueling station in Albany.
Students in the Schoharie BOCES Career and Technical school got to learn about clean energy and the opportunities in the field. While students are learning about potential careers in the industry, they're also learning about how to help the environment by using natural gas produced here in the United States.
"We're showing them all the benefits of natural gas for transportation uses, and how the natural gas compression operates, and how simple it is to fuel up a natural gas vehicle," said John Gilbrook, National Gird Project Manager.
National Grid said its important to teach the students how clean energy could be helpful in strengthening our economy in the future. They said natural gas can cost nearly 35 percent less than gasoline and diesel fuels.
