TruStar Energy recently announced the groundbreaking of its first public fast-fill compressed CNG station, located in Orlando, Florida. It will be completed in the fall of 2014, with plans for additional branded public stations to be built in strategic locations throughout the country in 2015. “We are very excited about developing our own branded public fueling stations,” said TruStar Energy President, Adam Comora.
The new station, expected to be open 24/7, will be located on Exchange Drive, within the Orlando Central Park development and will be constructed to serve Class Eight vehicles with four traffic lanes and two fueling islands, allowing for easy access for both commercial vehicles and private CNG consumer vehicles, like the new Chevrolet Impala.
“We’ve taken our knowledge and identified key areas around the country where our future stations will be able to provide needed fuel for both private and commercial NGVs, added Comora. “We continue to see rapid adoption of natural gas across industries and we look forward to providing more public fueling options as we help those fleets convert over to cleaner burning and more economical CNG.”
According to TruStar Energy Sales VP, Scott Edelbach, the Orlando location has been on the radar for quite some time. “Many fleet owners there have told us they need additional fueling options in the Orlando area. We’ve done extensive research and have found a location that is very close to several major fleets as well as a heavy traffic corridor – making it a very attractive location to serve our customers. This station will be able to serve several hundred CNG vehicles per day,” he said.
