TruStar Energy to build three RNG stations for CITY Furniture
TruStar will manage the development, construction, and service in Miami Gardens, Ocoee, and Plant City, Florida. Under the contract, OPAL Fuels will supply the company with 7.75 million gasoline gallon equivalents of RNG over the terms of the agreement.
The three new stations join CITY Furniture’s first RNG fuelling station in Tamarac, Florida, which OPAL Fuels built 10 years ago. The stations and RNG dispensing agreement are part of CITY Furniture’s sustainability push and Green Promise for carbon neutrality by 2040.
“Companies operating heavy-duty trucks are quickly realising 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 – RNG does that today,” said Adam Comora, co-CEO of OPAL Fuels.
“Our partnership with CITY Furniture will reduce their carbon emissions by 52,000 tons by switching to RNG from diesel fuel.”
CITY Furniture’s president, Andrew Koenig, commented: “We made the promise to invest in a greener future and to make a substantial effort to care for our planet two years ago. Our 2040 Green Promise using CNG lowers emissions compared to diesel. Using RNG will significantly reduce emissions even further.
“There was no other option but to partner with OPAL Fuels on this venture. We make thousands of deliveries every year, so transitioning all of our trucks to RNG is a critical step in reducing our emissions.
“We are proud to say our fleet is one of the greenest in the industry, and our transition to 100% RNG solidifies that. We will continue to push for a cleaner, more sustainable future partnered with OPAL Fuels.”
