TruStar Energy has opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station Denver. A first of the city, the station will provide both time-fill and fast-fill capabilities, providing fuel to Denver’s fleet of seven CNG garbage trucks.

Denver plans to expand its CNG fleet over the next several years, TruStar Energy said.

“This is a great day for TruStar and the City of Denver,” said Scott Edelbach, TruStar vice president. “Building a station of this size on time in the middle of a very challenging winter is a testament to our construction team. When people think of Denver, they think of clean air, mountains and blue skies.  The completion of the new CNG fueling station is the beginning of the city's conversion from using diesel to cleaner natural gas.  TruStar Energy is privileged to be a part of this most important process.”

The station has the capacity of fueling 136 vehicles simultaneously – which will support Denver's vehicle migration plan over the next several years.

“Denver is very proud of this investment in alternative fuel infrastructure,” said Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock. “The new CNG station is an important milestone in achieving our sustainability goals and elevating Denver’s reputation as a smart, livable city.”
