WASHINGTON, DC — Growth Energy has joined forces with Bridgehampton Service Station to introduce another E85 fueling facility in the state of New York. Bridgehampton Service Station at 2148 Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton has opened an E85 pump with assistance from Growth Energy’s 2010 E85 and Blender Pump Program. Earlier this month, Growth Energy assisted with the installment of four other E85 stations in Long Island.
“We are pleased to partner with Bridgehampton Service Station to provide greater access to high level blends of ethanol for New York drivers,” said Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis. “Increased consumption of ethanol will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, clean our air and help create jobs in Bridgehampton and across the country.”
Albert McCoy, sole shareholder of Bridgehampton Service Station LLC said, “One of the main reasons we decided to install E85 was because we have hundreds of FFV’s in our surrounding cities that can fuel up. We built a station that offers E85 because we recognize the local demand to do things ‘green’. An added incentive is that there was funding available to assist with infrastructure.”
The Bridgehampton station started selling E85 on June 5, 2010, but also offers E10 among other fuels. Since the installation of the E85 pump, Bridgehampton has been pumping 300-400 gallons of E85 fuel daily.
Bridgehampton has become part of Growth Energy’s 2010 E85 and Blender Pump Program, offering funds to retailers for the alternative fuel infrastructure. Growth Energy is also assisting retailers with the technical aspects of installation and marketing of both mid and high level blends of ethanol.
