“The Try-It Family and our stakeholders are excited about the significant environmental benefit of this effort that uses an abundant domestic resource,” said Paul Vukelic, Try-It’s president and COO. “Try-It’s project is expected to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 390 tons annually – equivalent to taking 80 cars off the road. Our company is among the first large beverage distributors in the nation to convert its fleet.”
The filling station, owned and operated by ANG, is able to fuel all CNG-powered vehicles – from tractor-trailers to consumer-owned cars. “The Try-It facility is an example of our commitment to providing world class, publicly accessible CNG infrastructure capable of accommodating all vehicle sizes. We look forward to providing premier fueling services to Try-It Distributing and its subsidiaries, allowing them to operate a significantly cleaner and more cost effective delivery fleet,” commented Drew West, ANG founder and CEO.
“Try-It Distributing’s commitment to using a cleaner, alternative fuel is an example of how the transportation sector can have far-reaching impacts on New York’s economic and environmental well-being,” added John B. Rhodes, NYSERDA president and CEO.
