TuStar Energy Inaugurates CNG Fueling Station in Florida

TruStar Energy opened a CNG fueling station for City Furniture, located in Tamarac, Florida, to support several of their locations throughout the state.

The two-compressor station is located at their Tamarac headquarters and warehouse location, and will be used to fuel their fleet of new CNG-powered delivery trucks – which will service the surrounding communities.

“It is exciting to see new market segments take advantage of all the things domestic CNG has to offer – and the Koenig family, long known for their eye toward environmental responsibility, is one the first furniture delivery companies we’re aware of that is converting their fleet to CNG,” said TruStar Energy Vice President, Scott Edelbach.

“We made the decision after extensive due diligence – researching vehicle manufacturers, speaking with station builders throughout the U.S. and abroad, and meeting with owners of CNG stations and county leaders aware of the (CNG) technology,” said Koenig family. “The DOE’s Clean Cities Coalition helped us understand how to make this happen, and TruStar Energy has been terrific in guiding us through the process. We concluded that the ROI payback was strong for our company’s future, the environment and the communities we serve.”

TruStar Energy President Adam Comora said the financial viability of CNG throughout the transportation sector was a game changer going forward. “Fuel savings from 30% to 50% create significant value for fleet operators and their partners,” said Comora, adding, “Natural gas is better for the environment, better for domestic energy independence and better for the bottom line – truly a win-win-win solution.”
