WEC Energy to Sell Network of Gas Fueling Station

WEC Energy Group plans to sell a network of compressed natural gas fueling stations it acquired as part of its Integrys purchase. Building CNG stations around the country doesn’t fit the risk profile for the Milwaukee-based parent company of Upper Midwest utilities, so the business, known as Trillium CNG, is for sale, a company spokeswoman said.

The Trillium business operates 66 public stations around the country, as well as 43 private stations that are used just by one trucking customer. The Trillium network of stations has expanded around the country in recent years, investing in CNG stations from coast to coast. Its assets are valued at about $140 million and it has 111 employees in fifteen states.

Trillium CNG Inks Deal for School Buses

Trillium CNG™, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group,
has been selected to design, build, operate and maintain
a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station for the
largest operator of CNG-fueled school buses in the country,
the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). This will
be the second CNG fueling station built and operated by
Trillium CNG for the California school district.

Trillium CNG Inks Deal in Monterey California

Trillium CNG, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group,
has signed a letter of agreement with the Monterey
Regional Waste Management District in California to
build, own and operate a new compressed natural gas
(CNG) refueling station to power the district’s CNG refuse
trucks. The station will be built at the Monterey Regional
Environmental Park located at 14201 Del Monte Boulevard
in Marina, California.

By mid-2016, the district will extrude the methane gas
produced at the Monterey Peninsula Landfill, a nearby
sanitary facility, and convert the recovered natural gas into
CNG to power their fleet. Trucks will begin and end
the day at the site. “It’s really sort of a perfect closed-loop
resulting in negative carbon impact,” said Tim Flanagan, the
district’s Assistant General Manager.

Opening for Wisconsin’s Largest CNG Fueling Station in Oak Creek

EVO CNG™ and its joint venture partner, Trillium CNG™ are pleased to celebrate the Grand Opening of a the largest compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Wisconsin located at 7155 South First Street in Oak Creek.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was the featured guest at the event.
“It’s exciting to be here today to welcome the first EVO CNG and
Trillium CNG refueling station to Wisconsin,” said Governor
Walker. “Over the last three and a half years, we’ve worked
tirelessly to create a business friendly environment that will
encourage companies like EVO CNG and Trillium CNG to
invest in our state. I’m proud to be here today with Wisconsin’s
newest job creator.”  The Oak Creek station is the first for EVO
Trillium CNG.
“We are excited about the future of compressed natural gas as a
transportation fuel in the United States and, more specifically, in
Wisconsin,” said Danny Cuzick, President and CEO of EVO CNG.
“Wisconsin is one of the states on the leading edge of CNG
infrastructure development. EVO CNG is proud to add our name
to the list of CNG stations built specifically for fueling Class 8
tractor-trailers here in the Badger state.”


TrilliumHD has announced it is building the Green Bay area’s
first public compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station. The
fueling station, which will open in March, 2012, will be located
in De Pere. TrilliumHD will also operate and maintain the
station. Public access to the fuel will be available to anyone
with a CNG vehicle. The station’s primary customers, however,
will be heavy-duty (HD) trucking and transportation fleets.
Special fueling programs will be available to fleets wanting to
take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits
of CNG.   Paper Transport, Inc. is the first fleet to contract
with TrilliumHD. TrilliumHD  is a joint venture between
Integrys Transportation Fuels, LLC, operating as Trillium
CNG,  with offices in Green Bay and Chicago, and Paper
Transport, Inc., based in Green Bay.
