Trillium partners with METRO Regional Transit Authority
Cost-effective solution brings environmental benefits to residents; third Trillium station in Ohio
HOUSTON, Jan. 25, 2021 - Trillium, a leading provider of alternative fueling systems and renewable fuels, has announced a partnership with METRO Regional Transit Authority in Akron, Ohio. Starting this month, Trillium began operating and maintaining METRO's compressed natural gas fueling station.
The public station, located at 310 Kenmore Blvd., is open 24/7 and features two CNG dispensers with dual hoses for light- and heavy-duty fueling. The station will serve CNG fleets operating in and around Akron.
"Trillium is excited to help METRO continue providing reliable clean energy fueling for its public transportation with the potential to grow its CNG fleet in the future," said JP Fjeld-Hansen, vice president of Trillium.
This is the third municipal CNG station completed or under construction in Ohio for Trillium. A station for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority was designed and built by Trillium, and a second transit authority station in Cleveland by Trillium should be completed this fall. Trillium will also maintain that station.
As one of the most cost-effective alternative fuels for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, CNG is a viable option for customers aiming to reduce emissions. Trillium operates over 200 CNG stations across the country, offering station design and build expertise, 24/7 operations and maintenance, grant writing and commercial assistance. Fleet owners interested in transitioning to CNG can reach Trillium by emailing ContactTrillium@Loves.com.
