State Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich announced that more than $200,000 has been awarded to L.T. Verrastro Inc. through the state Natural Gas Energy Development Program.

Kavulich said, “They are on the cutting edge of the industry and this grant will allow them to take advantage of the financial and environmental benefits of natural gas.”

Verrastro is an importing beer distributor located in Old Forge and serves eight counties throughout the commonwealth. In total, the distributor will receive $217,399 to construct a compressed natural gas fueling station and purchase five tractor compressed natural gas trucks. Kavulich urged the Department of Environmental Protection to financially support the plan. The Department of Environmental Protection is responsible for administering the Natural Gas Energy Development Program. The program was established under Act 13 of 2012 and designates a portion of impact fees assessed on drilling operations to fund the initiative.
