Trillium CNG to Build Public CNG Station in Colorado
Trillium CNG plans to design, build, operate and maintain a public CNG fueling station at the Glenwood Food & Fuel Shell West Mart located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The anchor fleet for the public-access station will be Western Tank Lines.
The new facility, located just north of I-70 in West Glenwood, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will feature one dual-hose dispenser with access from two lanes.
Ground breaking at the site began August 10, and Trillium CNG expects the new facility to be completed and operational by the fall. This is Trillium CNG’s second station in Colorado. Trillium CNG built and operates the private CNG station in Glenwood Springs that supports the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA) for its VelociRFTA Bus Rapid Transit, which provides service to Aspen and Grand Hogback service to Rifle.
Garfield County, which is working to switch vehicles in its fleet to natural gas, reached out in support of the natural gas fueling station with a $90,000 grant. The new Glenwood Springs station is also supported by a $10,000 grant from the City of Glenwood Springs and a $442,880 grant from the State of Colorado’s Alt Fuels Colorado grant program, which is funded by the Federal Highway Administration.
“The Glenwood Springs City Council is pleased to see construction begin on the Trillium CNG fueling station, and we look forward to the station opening this fall,” said Glenwood Springs Mayor Mike Gamba. “Offering public CNG fueling helps diversify our local economy, and will give people an incentive to buy CNG vehicles.”
