Town’s First Public Access CNG Is Piedmont’s Third in the South Carolina

Piedmont Natural Gas has opened a public access compressed natural gas fueling outlet at a Spinx convenience store in Anderson, S.C.

Piedmont Natural Gas and The Spinx Company, which operates 80 convenience stores in South Carolina, marked the opening of the first public compressed natural gas fueling station in Anderson, S.C. at a Spinx store yesterday. Note the nice price: $1.80 per GGE/gasoline gallon equivalent.

It’s the first in the town and the tenth for Piedmont in the Carolinas and Tennessee.

Piedmont says that it’s working with corporate fleet owners and municipalities to install dedicated-CNG fueling facilities at their locations, and has itself converted approximately one-third of its corporate fleet to CNG.

‘Providing Greater Access’

“More businesses are choosing natural gas because it is an economical and environmentally responsible alternative to gasoline and other transportation fuels,” Piedmont senior VP and CFO Karl Newlin said in a release.

“Providing greater access to this abundant, low-cost energy source is an important part of Piedmont’s larger commitment to growing CNG as an alternative transportation fuel,” he said.

ANGI Energy

Plans for the Spinx-hosted CNG outlet in Anderson – near Interstate-85 approximately halfway between Charlotte and Atlanta – were disclosed early this year (F&F, January 19).

The Anderson station has an ANGI Energy Systems compression package.

Greenville, S.C.-based Spinx operates approximately 80 c-stores in South Carolina.
