Piedmont Natural Gas Marks Opening of Wave Transit’s CNG Fueling Station

Piedmont Natural Gas and Wave Transit are celebrating the new CNG fueling station located within the transit agency’s recently opened operations center in Wilmington, North Carolina. Piedmont worked with general contractor Jackson Builders to design and build the refueling station and equipped it with infrastructure capable of refueling 20 vehicles at a time. The agency has two CNG buses in their “Green Wave” fleet and plans to acquire a total of 18 CNG buses by 2018.

“We chose to use CNG as an alternative fuel because of its lower cost, reduced price volatility and lower carbon footprint,” said Albert Eby, Wave Transit’s executive director. “Wave Transit is committed to meeting the needs of our passengers, and we are confident that using natural gas will benefit our agency and our community for years to come.”

Piedmont is working with other corporate fleet owners and municipalities to install dedicated CNG refueling facilities at their locations, and Piedmont also operates 10 public CNG refueling stations throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. In addition, Piedmont has converted approximately one-third of its own corporate fleet to vehicles that run on CNG.
