West Glenwood CNG station opens this Friday

A grand opening of the new Trillium compressed natural gas fueling station at the Shell West Mart in West Glenwood Springs is set for 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 6.

Everyone is invited to attend the ceremony, witness the ceremonial first fill from the new CNG fuel pump and kick the tires on CNG trucks in service locally.

“Opening this station means that Glenwood Springs area fleets and drivers can now use Colorado-produced natural gas for light-duty and medium-duty trucks,” said Garfield County Commissioner Tom Jankovsky.

“Natural gas is important for Garfield County, and using it for transportation is good for our local economy,” Jankovsky added.

The CNG station was installed by Trillium CNG, which has built and operates 100 CNG fueling stations across the country. Trillium also installed the CNG fueling facility at RFTA’s Glenwood Maintenance Facility for its fleet of 24 CNG buses and two new Traveler vans.

Grant awards from the Colorado Energy Office, Garfield County and city of Glenwood Springs covered about half the cost of the $1.2 million project.

The Shell station at 23 Mel Ray Road is owned by Western Petroleum of Glenwood Springs.

The CNG station grand opening is hosted by Garfield Clean Energy, Western Slope CNG Network, Garfield County, Glenwood Springs, Colorado Energy Office, Refuel Colorado Fleets, CLEER, the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association, Berthod Motors, Western Petroleum and Trillium CNG.
