A national provider of alternative fuels systems and renewable fuels debuted a new name: Trillium CNG is now Trillium. Company officials simultaneously announced the name change and a partnership with California-based EV Connect, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo.
“Trillium has been one of the top providers of CNG services for more than 20 years, and we’ll continue leading the way in that space,” said Bill Cashmareck, managing director of Trillium. “We believe our company name should fully reflect our offerings. By adding alternative fueling solutions like EV charging and hydrogen fueling to our portfolio we are helping customers reduce tailpipe emissions. Pairing those solutions with renewable fuels reduces the total lifecycle emission profile of our customers’ fleets.”
Trillium and EV Connect are partnering to install EV charging infrastructure at three existing Love’s Travel Stops stores in California in Tulare, Ripon, and Coachella. EV Connect will operate the charge stations, while Trillium will build the sites and provide ongoing management. Construction begins this summer and is expected to be complete early this fall. The companies will install EV charging infrastructure at a future Love’s Travel Stop scheduled to open in 2019.
