DTE compressed natural gas station for vehicles, 44th St. SW in Wyoming.
WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- DTE executives say a new West Michigan filling station will save the company money and customers, too.
DTE unveiled a public fueling station on 44th Street SW for vehicles operating on compressed natural gas (CNG).
The utility company is using natural gas for some trucks in its fleet. DTE's president says it's an economical energy source for a number of reasons.
"First of all, it's going to save them in the pocketbooks because natural gas is cheaper than gasoline," says Jerry Norcia. "Secondly, it's going to put Americans to work because it's an American fuel."
DTE has 20 natural gas stations in the state. It also sells the compressed natural gas to other companies like AT&T for use in its fleets of trucks.
