La Crosse filling station was designed by GP Strategies, and includes one 15,000-gallon LNG storage tank, two LNG fuel dispensers and three dual hose CNG dispensers. The facility will serve Kwik Trip’s fleet, which now includes 20 natural gas vehicles, private fleets, and vehicles using multiple or other alternative fuels.
The state of Wisconsin helped offset Kwik Trip’s $3 million investment in La Crosse station. “We’re trying to ensure that we’ve got the infrastructure in place for transportation companies to be able to utilize compressed natural gas because it can give them a competitive advantage,” said Chris Schoenherr, deputy secretary at the Department of Administration.
Recently, chain of convenience stores Love’s also announced the schedule of grand opening events for six of 10 publicly accessible compressed natural gas fueling stations in Oklahoma.
