Kwik Trip nears two dozen natural gas stations
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Convenience store operator and upper Midwest alternative fuels leader Kwik Trip opened two compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations this month, bringing its total to 22 stations. The new CNG sites are in Eagan, Minn., and De Pere, Wisc. Kwik Trip also plans to open fueling stations in Waterloo, Iowa, and Wausau and Menomonie, Wisc.
Since opening its first CNG station in April 2012, Kwik Trip has continued developing CNG fueling infrastructure throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. The company has expanded its fuel offerings using internal resources and expertise. Kwik Trip plans to develop 10 to 15 new CNG stations this year and expand into new markets.
Kwik Trip's distribution fleet, Convenience Transportation, travels 18 million miles annually with more than 50 natural gas vehicles. The company is using this fleet to test, evaluate, and promote different classes and sizes of alternative fuel vehicles based on their experience.
