January 9, 2021. TruStar Energy, a market leader in renewable natural gas (RNG) fuel supply for the transportation sector, announced a successful 2020 and aggressive growth plans to continue transitioning heavy duty United States transportation from diesel to lower cost, cleaner alternatives.
“The future of renewable heavy-duty transportation is here now, thanks to renewable natural gas,” said Adam Comora, President and CEO of TruStar Energy. “Companies operating Class 8 trucks are quickly realizing that they don’t have to wait for new, unproven technologies and infrastructure to significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and save on fuel costs—our RNG does that today. We see RNG as a lasting part of a future where there will be many different fuels and technologies for various applications. We’re excited about the long-term benefits of RNG and look forward to helping more organizations deploy it within their heavy-duty fleet.”
During 2020, TruStar Energy completed 42 natural gas fueling station projects across the country, bringing its total completed projects to 380. TruStar’s service network continues to grow with over 60 service professionals providing coverage to 140 fueling stations nationwide, producing over 120 million annual GGE.
In December, the company’s parent, Fortistar, in tandem with the TruStar Energy’s distribution efforts, announced the fifth of 12 new RNG projects, together requiring nearly $500 million of new capital investment. These new projects will produce over 100 million GGE annually of RNG, reducing annual U.S. transportation emissions by 2 million metric tons of CO2—the equivalents of taking approximately 434,782 passenger cars off the road.
“TruStar Energy combines RNG fuel supply with best in class RNG fuel delivery. By designing, engineering, constructing and servicing stations, we ensure seamless execution and uninterrupted fuel supply for our fleet partners,” said Scott Edelbach, Chief Operating Officer of TruStar Energy. “TruStar Energy provides a vertically integrated solution for fleets looking to reduce their carbon footprint, save money, and most importantly, do it today.”
