5 Alt-fuel Stations Open in Sacramento
Propel Fuels launches the first of a state-wide network of low-carbon fueling stations. The green-built station platform makes it convenient for consumers and fleets to fuel their vehicles with environmentally friendly, American-made fuels. Propel stations now sell E85 Flex Fuel and Biodiesel, with Hydrogen and Electric Chargers soon to come. The company aims to deploy hundreds of stations across the state within the next five years.
This new fuel infrastructure strengthens California's economy by keeping dollars, otherwise spent on foreign oil, within the state while creating hundreds of new green-collar jobs. The total five year economic output from deploying the new statewide renewable fuel infrastructure is estimated to be more than $200 million. Additionally, Propel is committed to acquiring renewable fuels from California producers, which will offset the import of more than 100 million gallons of petroleum per year, and is estimated to generate over $400 million of direct and indirect economic activity within California.
The first Propel stations will be co-located at gas stations in Elk Grove, Calif., Rocklin, Calif., Citrus Heights, Calif. and Sacramento, Calif. Propel stations will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and accept all major credit, debit and fleet cards. A map of current Propel locations is available at www.propelfuels.com.
