Public Station to Support Local Transportation Authority:
Will Fill Current 300-Mile Pueblo-Grand Junction CNG Gap
Love’s Trillium CNG said today that it’s finalized an agreement to bring a compressed natural gas fueling station to Gunnison, Colo. Gunnison County and RTA, the Gunnison Valley Rural Transportation Authority, agreed with Trillium for the fuel provider to design, own, operate and maintain the new CNG facility.
Construction is to begin this spring and the station should be open by summer, Love’s says.
“The new station will fill a gap of nearly 300 miles between Pueblo and Grand Junction along U.S. Highway 50 [currently] without access to CNG,” Love’s says, citing the federal Alterative Fuels Data Center.
Transit, City, Over-the-Road
“I’m pleased to see another project where the transit sector, a municipal fleet and over-the-road professional truck drivers are able to come together and move toward alternative fueling options,” Love’s natural gas director Bill Cashmareck says in today’s announcement.
“CNG is a great solution for vehicles and fleets of all sizes, and our project in Gunnison is a fantastic example of an entire community choosing that path,” he said.
The new Gunnison station will feature two CNG pumps. Love’s says its will supply RNG/renewable natural gas to the county fleet and Gunnison Valley RTA.
The CNG project is supported by a $500,000 grant from CEO, the Colorado Energy Office.
