Posted on July 31, 2015

Trillium CNG™, a business unit of WEC Energy Group, signed a letter of agreement to design, build, operate and maintain a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) in Buffalo, N.Y.

The new CNG station will be located at the NFTA Frontier Bus Garage in Buffalo. The agreement letter also calls for Trillium CNG to provide station maintenance for 10 years. Trillium CNG and NFTA expect to break ground in August with the station fully operational by the end of 2015.

The NFTA operates a fleet of about 332 transit buses and 65 bus routes with over 4,400 bus stops serviced; along with a 6.2 mile light rail system servicing 14 stations.

The new CNG fueling facility will feature two 250-hp compressors, producing 700 standard cubic feet per minute, with options for up to three more. The station will allow for fueling from four dispensers.
