Greater Pittsburgh Gets More Compressed Natural Gas Refueling


The natural gas refueling network in Pennsylvania got a bit more densely populated last week, with new compressed natural gas (CNG) infrastructure coming online at a GetGo location in Cranberry Township.

Giant Eagle Inc., the owner of the GetGo convenience store brand, is in the process of converting many of its own heavy-duty trucks to run on natural gas. The company also opened its first pair of CNG stations, located in the Pittsburgh area, in July 2011, and it offers electric vehicle charging stations at three of its supermarkets.

The new station in Cranberry Township, which is centrally located close to both I-79 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, is the first of its kind in Butler County, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

‘We have offered various alternative fuels at select GetGo locations for a number of years and are excited to be introducing [compressed natural gas] into this mix,’ Giant Eagle's Dave Daniel told the newspaper.
