HOUSTON — Trillium, a member of the Love’s family of companies and provider of alternative fueling systems and renewable fuels, has opened two new compressed natural gas (CNG) locations in California.
“We are seeing strong, rising demand from customers in California for CNG,” said JP Fjeld-Hansen, vice president of Trillium. “To meet that demand, we’re focused on adding more stations and committed to providing fueling options that will benefit the environment.”
The two newly opened locations are both located at Love’s Travel Stops:
- 21948 Highway 46, Lost Hills, California, 93249; and
- 2000 East Tehachapi Blvd., Tehachapi, California, 93561.
The public fast-fill stations each have two heavy-duty and two light-duty fueling nozzles, providing infrastructure for multiple vehicle types. The stations offer CNG fueling capabilities to fleet customers fed by renewable natural gas (RNG). RNG is produced entirely from organic waste streams and is a low-carbon fuel that is interchangeable with pipeline-quality natural gas. Use of RNG can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% to 125%, depending on the feedstock, when compared to diesel fuel.
In addition, Trillium is celebrating the August opening of a public CNG station at 1055 N. Alameda St. in Los Angeles by extending a price discount on fuel through Sept. 30 (the discount was originally set to expire Aug. 31). During the promotion, Trillium customers at the Los Angeles location on North Alameda Street will pay only 99 cents per gallon of gasoline equivalent (GGE).
In addition, drivers who download and use the Love’s Connect App will receive mobile deals. When drivers first download the app, they’ll receive immediate access to deals such as a free fountain drink, free coffee and buy-one-get-one offers on roller grill items.
