United States: Autogas refuelling expands into North Carolina

Chesapeake Utilities Corporation’s subsidiary Sharp Energy opened a new fuelling station in Dunn, North Carolina, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The facility is the first Sharp service station dispensing Autogas in North Carolina. The newly constructed station is one of 60 LPG stations operated by Sharp AutoGas. Other stations are in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida.

The company first expanded its operating footprint into the Carolinas in December when its subsidiary Sharp Energy acquired the propane operating assets of Diversified Energy Company. In June, Sharp Energy acquired the propane operating assets of Davenport Energy’s Siler City propane division, further expanding into North Carolina.

“We are excited to expand our Autogas offerings to North Carolina. This new fuelling station will provide a lower emissions fuel option for truck fleets and other vehicles that operate in the area,” said Andrew Hesson, vice president of propane operations.

The ribbon-cutting event included representatives from the North Carolina Energy Policy Council, Dunn Chamber of Commerce and the North Carolina Technical Education Center, among others.

Sharp Energy is a partner of Alliance AutoGas, a national network of companies that have joined together to deliver a comprehensive alternative fuelling solution including EPA-certified propane Autogas vehicle conversions, on-site fuelling infrastructure, fuel supply, safety and operational training, and ongoing technical support.
