The new CNG stations will not only provide fuel for these tractors and help pave the way for more NGVs to be introduced into the Frito-Lay fleet, but will also make available fuel for other companies currently using or considering alternative fuel vehicles in the future. The seven fueling stations, along with three other stations that will be in operation this year, will begin at a total expected annual volume of two million gallons and grow to a little over eight million gallons in five years.
Questar Fueling and Trillium CNG™ were selected as the two vendors that will develop the seven facilities. In addition to building the station in Beloit, Trillium will be responsible for building CNG sites in: Jonesboro, Ark.; Orlando, Fla.; Charlotte, N.C.; Rosenberg, Texas; and Perry, Ga. Moreover, Questar will construct stations in Killingly, Conn., and Topeka, Kan.
