The recently opened Preysal multi-fuel service station, is a nod to the NGC Group Green Agenda in more ways than one. The NP-branded station has 14 liquid and 10 CNG filling spots in addition to an Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging station. In keeping with this country’s renewable energy mandate, solar technology is powering the operation of the new station. The NGC Group was issued the first renewable energy, non- utility scale license by the Ministry of Public Utilities. The license was granted for the use of the expansive solar photovoltaic (PV) system at the new Preysal Service Station. National Energy’s Sustainable Energy Division, managed the installation of the solar panels and tie-in to the power requirements of the facility. The 320 panels will generate 100 kw of power, which will be used for:

  • A rapid or Level 3 direct current (DC) charging station for EVs with three modes of charging and capable of charging two vehicles simultaneously. This is the first high speed EV charger in Trinidad and Tobago
  • Canopy lighting
  • Convenience store in-store and peripheral lighting
  • Liquid fuel dispensers
