Angela Beavers, CEO of Beavers Petroleum Equipment and Alternate Fuels, which was the contractor behind the CNG station, stated: “More vehicles are coming available, and commercial operators will realize the bigger savings. They will drive the infrastructure at the beginning, and there are federal tax incentives the government has put into play for resellers of CNG and those that are using NGVs.” Since 1989, Beavers has built more than 60 natural gas fueling stations in New York and Pennsylvania.
Dandy Mini Mart got involved with the alternative fuel after visiting Chesapeake Energy’s headquarters in Oklahoma City. “Chesapeake invited us to their headquarters about a year ago and we toured several sites and gained as much knowledge of CNG as we could. We decided to take a chance and we hope that people see the value in it and capitalize on it,” owner Randy Williams expressed.
Apart from Dandy fuel offering, Williams Oil has shown its commitment to natural gas vehicles. Its own fleet of 150 trucks is being converted to CNG and the company also owns several auto dealerships, representing Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Kia, Ford and Lincoln. Natural gas powered Civic will be soon introduced.
