Eighteen More PennDoT Stations Through 2018
As Provider Extols the Public-Private Partnership
Love’s Trillium CNG this month opened another of its 29 transit-centric but compressed natural gas fueling outlets in Pennsylvania. The latest public-access outlet is for RabbitTransit in York.
The company is stressing the importance public-private partnerships, as a key P3 led to the company’s 20-year, $84.5 million project to build 29 CNG stations with PennDoT, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (F&F, March 29, 2016).
Trillium CNG expects to open an additional 13 stations in Pennsylvania this year, and five more in 2018. Stations are to be completed this year in State College, Ebensburg, Greensburg, Beaver, Meadville, New Castle, Allentown, Lebanon, Altoona, and Gettysburg. Trillium CNG outlets in Johnstown and Donora are already up and running.
Partners Share the Costs
“Public-private partnerships,” the company says, “help municipalities maintain fleets and gain access to some of the latest vehicle technologies without the hefty upfront capital. The same holds true for municipalities ready to add compressed natural gas vehicles. By using a P3, municipalities can reap the benefits of lower fuel costs and environmentally friendlier fuels.”
“The P3 approach,” Trillium says, “allows additional private-sector partners to be brought into the fold.”
Separately, Love’s Trillium is spreading the word that it recently raised $310,000 for sick and injured children with Musket Corp through the organizations’ annual Drive for a Child fundraiser. Proceeds benefit the Texas Children’s Hospital, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals affiliate in Houston.
