In 2015, a new compressed natural gas fueling site from Spire Natural Gas Fueling Solutions will be developed next to an all-new QuikTrip travel center, which provides all the amenities that Class 8 drivers expect, including the large convenience store, fresh food, expanded parking and certified scales. Drivers can soon fuel at the station located in Greer at the intersection of Interstate 85 and Highway 101.
The new offering from The Laclede Group will be open 24/7 serving both CNG fleets and the general public. The station is designed for all vehicles including passenger cars and service vans up to large Class 8 trucks. Designed for heavy-duty commercial vehicles, accommodations include fast fueling dispensers and a wide turning radius, with the ability to fuel four tractor-trailers at once.
“Fleet owners will quickly see the financial benefits of this technology and the price difference in the fuel. When you add that up over a fleet of vehicles, the math makes sense,” said Peter Stansky, chief operating officer of Spire. “These drivers can save a full dollar or more per gallon for compressed natural gas fuel compared to gasoline or diesel. Natural gas is clean, abundant and domestic, and that keeps the price down while also being better for our environment.”
This will be the first Spire compressed natural gas fueling station in South Carolina and will be built by Siemens Industry, Inc. Customers will be able to fuel their vehicles quickly and safely thanks to the high quality control technology and compression equipment. Additionally, the well-lit station will be monitored around-the-clock to help ensure customer safety.
