Ribbon Cutting Celebrates Sharp Energy Partnership

Sharp Energy partnered with the Delaware Department of Transportation for a ribbon cutting in celebration of the Delaware Transit Corporation’s (DTC) new propane fuel station in New Castle, Delaware. DTC plans to increase its fleet of propane-powered paratransit buses, and will operate 130 of these alternative-fuel vehicles for its Delaware Area Regional Transit (DART) paratransit service by 2018.

Sharp Energy provides the fuel supply for the DART paratransit buses along with providing technical and maintenance support for DART’s vehicles and fueling stations.

“Chesapeake Utilities Corporation is committed to investing in sustainable clean energy and improving our overall air quality. Cleaner alternative fuels like Sharp Energy’s propane AutoGas help reduce emissions,” said Bob Zola, President of Sharp Energy. “As we expand our AutoGas fueling station infrastructure, we can provide greater access to this low-cost, domestically produced fuel.”
