TruStar Energy has opened Denver’s first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station
– a station that will provide fuel to Denver’s current fleet of seven CNG garbage trucks. The city plans over the next several years to significantly increase the number of CNG vehicles which will fuel at the station.
The station has the capacity of fueling 136 vehicles simultaneously – which will support Denver’s vehicle migration plan over the next several years.
The Denver station is Trustar Energy’s third project in Colorado – and continues to grow the White Plains-based company’s infrastructure footprint in the U.S. and Canada.
“Converting from diesel to CNG is a game changer for enhancing the profitability of transportation operations,” said TruStar Energy president, Adam Comora. “Fuel savings of 40 to 50 percent create significant value for fleet operators and their partners. Natural gas is better for the environment, better for domestic energy independence and better for the bottom line – truly a win-win-win solution.”
TruStar Energy has historically focused on constructing “behind the fence” private stations like the one just finished for the City of Denver. Over the past few years it has built approximately 60 such stations in the U.S. TruStar Energy has recently expanded out to build owned and public/private fueling stations.
TruStar Energy has the capability of building 40 CNG stations per year and expects to double that capacity over the next few years.
