The Pete Store LLC announced plans to hold a Natural Gas Truck Forum in Greenville, S.C., on July 24.


The half-day event will take place at the Embassy Suites Golf Resort & Conference Center and includes speakers from Clean Energy, Cummins, Paccar Leasing, Peterbilt Motors, Pivotal LNG and Westport Innovations.

"Because there are several operational considerations a fleet must make before a conversion, we thought it made sense to bring all the key players to the table and have an open discussion about it," says Greg Arscott, general manager for the company's South Carolina operations.

In addition to an expert panel, a Peterbilt tractor equipped with a Westport 15 Liter GX liquefied natural gas engine will be on site giving attendees the opportunity to participate in ride-and-drive.

"Natural gas has quickly become one of the most compelling technologies in our industry," Arscott adds. "From our standpoint, the most exciting thing about Natural Gas is that, financially speaking, it stands on its own two feet. Government assistance is helpful, but certainly not vital to making it viable for a fleet".

Companies interested in attending this event may contact Ava Harrington at 864-269-7202.
