Trillium CNG Opens Compressed Natural Gas Fueling Station in Charlotte, N.C.

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jul 24, 2014) - Trillium CNG™, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group, Inc. (NYSE: TEG), has completed construction of a new public access Class-8 accessible compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station on the southwest side of Charlotte, North Carolina. The station is part of an agreement with Frito-Lay North America, who selected Trillium CNG to design, build, operate and maintain CNG stations to serve its fleet of heavy-duty tractor-trailers.

The new CNG station is located in an industrial park at 9960 Brookford Street in Charlotte and is about one mile from I-485 and I-77, two major interstates that serve the greater Charlotte Metropolitan area.

The CNG station will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and uses Trillium CNG's proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor. There are two fueling lanes today with expansion for an additional lane as demand increases.

"This is the fifth of eight CNG stations we've been awarded to build for Frito-Lay North America," said Mary Boettcher, Trillium CNG president. "We're proud to support Frito-Lay's sustainability goals to improve fleet fuel efficiency through the reduction of carbon emissions."

"Having a company with the credibility of Frito-Lay switch their fleet to CNG is a powerful statement," added Boettcher. "Frito-Lay understands that refueling with CNG creates an economic and environmental opportunity, one that we are excited to help them realize," said Boettcher.
