A network of 11 public propane refueling stations is set to open across the state of Washington. The stations, situated in 10 cities in the Puget Sound region and owned by Blue Star Gas, will be open 24 hours.
Blue Star is a member of the Alliance AutoGas clean vehicle conversion and refueling network.
“The Pacific Northwest has always been known as an environmental leader, and our clients’ business models reflect that by leading the way in reducing emissions with a green, clean-burning fuel like propane autogas,” said Darren Engle, director of government relations. “As more companies and citizens convert to alternative fuels, Blue Star Gas is providing the resources they need to make the transition easy and simple. This latest refueling network project is an example of our commitment to servicing our customers’ needs with the latest propane autogas refueling technology available.”
The refueling stations, similar in operation to traditional gasoline filling stations, will serve more than 400 customer vehicles in the Pacific Northwest. These customers can gain access to the pumps 24/7 via a card-reading system, which also enables users to track fuel savings and miles-per-gallon usage.
The Blue Star Gas public refueling network first came online in October 2011 with a site installation in the University District of Seattle, which services Seattle Children’s Hospital. By July of this year, all 11 public refueling stations will be in service.
