Sharp Energy, Inc. opened the seventh public propane autogas fueling station in the mid-Atlantic in partnership with Alliance AutoGas.

Sharp Energy also opened its new headquarters, which is the location of the public autogas fueling station, in Georgetown, Del., according to Alliance AutoGas.

“It is encouraging to see continued investment in propane autogas. With affordable dispensing infrastructure and easy to adapt conversion technology, fleets are able to experience a positive ROI in a year or two, and help clean the air utilizing the cleanest fossil fuel available,” said Ed Hoffman, president of Blossman Services, Inc.

Alliance AutoGas has installed over 800 refueling facilities in the US and Canada, and has also converted or participated in supplying autogas to more than 10,000 propane autogas vehicles and buses in North America, according to the company.

“We’re very proud to add this propane fueling station to Sussex County,” said Elaine B. Bittner, senior vp of Strategic Development and COO of Sharp Energy, Inc. “The stations are supporting the Company’s environmental initiatives in supplying propane, a clean, alternative fuel to the rapidly growing number of fleet vehicles in the area. Autogas–powered vehicles produce up to 20% lower emissions than gasoline vehicles and offer substantial cost savings on fuel and maintenance.”
