Piedmont Natural Gas and The Spinx Company announced an agreement to add a Piedmont compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station at a Spinx convenience store location.
Piedmont will lease space at an existing Spinx store at the corner of Pearman Dairy Road and West Whitner Street in Anderson, in order to install the necessary CNG refueling equipment and compressors.
Piedmont will own and maintain the site’s CNG facilities, which will be open to the public for use by commercial fleets and individual vehicles. The new station will be Piedmont’s 11th public CNG refueling station in the Carolinas and in Tennessee, and its third public CNG station in South Carolina.
“The use of CNG as a transportation fuel is growing as is the refueling infrastructure that supports that growth,” Spinx CEO Steve Spinks said in a release. “We believe this project fits very well with our own vision and mission to make people’s lives easier and to provide quality services and products.”
Piedmont senior vice president and CFO Karl Newlin said, “This is an important milestone for us as we continue to extend the base of our public CNG refueling stations along the important I-85 corridor in North and South Carolina.”
