WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., May 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TruStar Energy, one of the nation's leading developers of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations, congratulates FCA US LLC for being awarded the 2016 NGV Achievement Award for their leadership in migrating its fleet to CNG. By transitioning to this fuel, FCA US now has the largest private fleet of CNG-powered heavy-duty vehicles in the state of Michigan. Annually, the FCA US CNG fleet is projected to displace nearly 3.3 million gallons of diesel fuel and dramatically reduce CO2 emissions.
TruStar Energy constructed and owns the CNG fueling station located at the FCA US's North American Detroit Terminal. The CNG station fuels 179 tractor trucks in the FCA Transport fleet with cleaner, domestically produced natural gas.
The NGV Achievement Awards recognize national innovators and early adopters for their outstanding leadership, vision and innovation to advance natural gas as a transportation fuel. The award ceremony was held Wednesday, May 4, at the 2016 Advanced Clean Transportation Expo in Southern California.
"Despite the low price of oil, the transition to CNG still makes environmental and financial sense for many fleet owners like FCA US," said Adam Comora, President of TruStar Energy. "We are a proud partner of FCA US and are thrilled to see them recognized for their leadership."
CNG is insulated from price volatility of diesel and gas that comes from international conflicts and events, which in recent years has been responsible for dramatic price fluctuations. Plus, fleets that run on CNG have lower exhaust and carbon emissions compared to diesel and gasoline. Also, natural gas engines have an average of 80 percent to 90 percent lower decibel levels than diesel engines.
TruStar Energy has constructed over a hundred private and public CNG fueling stations across the country. To learn more about TruStar Energy's CNG fueling station program, visit www.trustarenergy.com.
