  4. 4.  Sustainability Initiatives LEED Stores Lighting Water Motors Renewable Energy Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose, Restore
  5. 5.  Natural Gas has been a part of oursociety for a long period of time› Home Heating› Cooking› Industrial Applications› Now emerging as a vehicle fuel
  6. 6.  Safe› Lighter than air› Dissipates when released High ignition temperature Doesn’t leak into groundwater Colorless Odorless Non-toxic 87 – 95% methane
  7. 7.  In the past fiveyears, shalereservoirs haverevealed naturalgas deposits thatdoubled previousestimated U.S. gasreserves – giving usclose to a 100-yearsupply

  12. 12. InfrastructureMap
  13. 13.  GGE› Gasoline GallonEquivalent› GGE corresponds tothe amount of CNGcontaining thesame energycontent as onegallon of gasoline› Used for CNG sales Ranging from $1.59 to$1.89 a GGE DGE› Diesel GallonEquivalent› DGE corresponds tothe amount of CNGcontaining thesame energycontent as onegallon of diesel› Used for LNG Sales $2.69 DGE
  14. 14.  There are about 120,000 NGVs on U.S.roads today› 14.8 million worldwide. NGVs meet the strictest emissionstandards NGVs are as safe as or safer thantraditional gasoline or diesel vehicles The fastest growing NGV segment iswaste collection and transfer vehicles
  15. 15.  Dedicated› Vehicles that run only on CNGHonda CivicKenworth T440
  16. 16.  Bi-fuel› Vehicle can run on CNG and GasolineChevy SilveradoDodge Caravan
  17. 17.  Kwik Trip currently operates over 30 naturalgas powered vehicles› Class 1-8 vehicles› Will replace 100% of fleet
  18. 18. Approximate ROI = 3.25
  19. 19.  Leverage Kwik Trip Fleet experience Offer same Natural Gas Service andSupport to public that we offer to our fleet Goal to make the transition to Natural Gaseasy for the general public Continue to build NG Infrastructure
