TruStar Energy has opened a company-owned public compressed natural gas (CNG) station at 515 E. Verot School Rd., Lafayette, La. The company says its new station, which features two traffic lanes and two fast-fill pumps, will help facilitate continued growth of natural gas as a transportation fuel in the Louisiana market.
‘By building out the CNG fueling infrastructure in Louisiana and nationwide, we are incentivizing more fleet owners to make the shift away from diesel and extending the range of CNG-powered fleets already on the road today,’ says Adam Comora, president of TruStar Energy.
‘Louisiana is a one of the nation's leading producers of natural gas, and fueling fleets with state-produced CNG brings economic vitality, reduces transportation-related emissions and creates more local jobs,’ comments Lauren Lambert-Tompkins, Clean Cities co-coordinator for Louisiana Clean Fuels. ‘We applaud TruStar Energy's investment in Louisiana's CNG fueling infrastructure and want to thank them for helping to create a clean fuel future for our state.’
TruStar Energy has constructed numerous CNG fueling stations across the country and recently embarked on a strategy to open dozens of company-owned public CNG stations along high-traffic U.S. corridors over the next several years. TruStar Energy opened its first company-owned public fueling station in Orlando, Fla., in July, followed by stations in Tulsa, Okla.; Houston; and now Lafayette.
