Rhoads Energy has announced plans to install two compressed natural gas (CNG) pumps at its Fredericksburg, Pa., Pacific Pride fueling station, which already offers diesel and gasoline. The company says the pumps will begin dispensing CNG to commercial fleet customers within weeks.
For the pump installation, Rhoads Energy has partnered with U.S. Gain, U.S. Venture's newly created division to build and operate GAIN Clean Fuel brand CNG stations. The partners selected the Fredericksburg site – located at 725 Legionnaire Dr. and one of Rhoads' four fueling stations – because it offers easy access from nearby I-78.
In the coming weeks, U.S. Gain will complete the addition of two high-flow CNG dispensers at the site. According to U.S. Gain estimates, the fast-fill CNG pumps will quickly ramp up to 100 fuelings per day.
“The new CNG pumps will expand the options available to our region's commercial fleets, enabling them to realize significant cost savings,” comments Michael DeBerdine III, CEO of Rhoads Energy. “As we move ahead, Rhoads Energy will continue to identify energy alternatives for our customers and work to bring them to market.”
