ORLANDO, Fla., July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TruStar Energy, a national leader in the design and construction of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling infrastructure, is excited to announce the groundbreaking of its first TruStar Energy-branded public fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) station, located in Orlando, Florida.
"We are very excited about developing our own branded public fueling stations," said TruStar Energy President, Adam Comora. "Since 2009, TruStar Energy has been a leader in developing public and private fueling infrastructure. We've taken that knowledge and identified key areas around the country where our future TruStar Energy branded stations will be able to provide needed fuel for both private and commercial CNG vehicles." Comora added, "We continue to see rapid adoption of CNG vehicles across industries and we look forward to providing more public fueling options as we help those fleets convert over to cleaner burning and more economical CNG."
According to TruStar Energy Sales VP, Scott Edelbach, the Orlando location has been on the radar for quite some time. "TruStar Energy has a strong presence in Florida and many fleet owners there have told us they need additional fueling options in the Orlando area. We've done extensive research and have found a location that is very close to several major fleets as well as a heavy traffic corridor – making it a very attractive location to serve our customers. This station will be able to serve several hundred CNG vehicles per day."
The new station will be located on Exchange Drive, within the Orlando Central Park development and will be constructed to serve Class Eight vehicles with four traffic lanes and two fueling islands, allowing for easy access for both commercial vehicles and private CNG-powered consumer vehicles, like the new Chevrolet Impala. This state of the art CNG station will be open 24/7 and will take commercial fuel cards like Comdata or Fuelman, as well as all major credit cards.
"This is great news for those fleets that are interested in the benefits that CNG has to offer – but are not able to own their own station. Converting from diesel to CNG is a game changer for enhancing the profitability of transportation operations," said Comora. "Fuel savings from 30% to 50% create significant value for fleet operators and their partners. Natural gas is better for the environment, better for domestic energy independence and better for the bottom line – truly a win-win-win solution."
The company's successful growth is being driven by being the preferred partner for companies desiring to convert their fleets from diesel to CNG. Given the significant cost savings, "speed is of the essence" in order to capture these cost savings as quickly as possible. TruStar Energy delivers cost effective and on-time CNG fueling solutions.
The Orlando TruStar Energy station will be completed in the fall of 2014, with plans for additional branded public stations to be built in strategic locations throughout the country in 2015.
Fleet owners with trucks operating in or around Orlando can contact TruStar Energy for attractive volume pricing.
