We’ve Liked CNG Since Before it Was Cool

Finding alternative transportation fuel sources has long been a hot topic—and SouthStar Energy Services has been leading the conversation and the way. Since serving our first compressed natural gas customer in 2001 in Georgia, we have now expanded our CNG operation to include other states in our footprint. That’s why our own company fleet car uses CNG! And why we ran the first ever CNG education and car giveaway campaign in Georgia (2011). Click here to see a recap of our campaign.

At SouthStar, we like to stay ahead of the curve. As early adopters of CNG, our staff has unparalleled expertise in the field and are frequent speakers at events across the country. From complex billing capacity to understanding telemetry issues, we’ve established ourselves as a leading authority and top partner for station builders and companies with fleets.

What We Are Doing

We supply CNG for hundreds of natural gas vehicles and equipment – from cars to light, medium and heavy-duty trucks and off-road equipment. This clean-burning fuel is showing its power and savings to our customers in a major way.
