Trillium CNG Station Opens South of Phoenix
Golden Eagle Distributors and Trillium CNG have officially opened the first public-access compressed natural gas fueling station in Casa Grande, Ariz., near Interstate-10 south of Phoenix.
The station will support Golden Eagle’s local fleet of five CNG trucks, as well as other local customers, both fleet and consumer.
“Through our partnerships with Ryder and Trillium, we are able to take advantage of both the cost and environmental savings of converting our heavy duty fleet to CNG,” Golden Eagle CEO Chris Clements said in a release.
28 CNG Trucks
Golden Eagle opened a public-access CNG station in Tucson last year. The beverage distributor was among the first customers outside California for CNG trucks leased from Ryder System (F&F, September 12, 2012).
“Golden Eagle,” states the Casa Grande announcement, “currently operates 28 CNG heavy duty vehicles which deliver 450 different beers and other beverages to over 1,700 retailers.
“Now that CNG fuel will be available in Casa Grande, other businesses and individuals can truly consider CNG as a viable alternative fuel for their fleets,” Clements said.
