The Gas Company Improves Energy Security For Maui With New Storage Facility

KAHULUI, Hawaii, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Gas Company (TGC), Hawaii's clean gas energy provider, added 180,000 gallons of propane storage on the island of Maui. The expansion represents a 25 percent increase in TGC's propane storage capacity on the island and ensures residential and commercial customers have reliable access to clean, renewable and affordable energy.

"This new facility represents TGC's commitment to reliability of service and improved energy security for Maui," said Mustafa Demirbag, general manager of The Gas Company in Maui County. "It enables us to meet the growing demand for clean gas energy while providing ample supply for customers' needs. The existing and new tanks can provide up to five weeks of clean gas energy for Maui customers." The company also plans to increase storage capacity on the islands of Oahu, Hawaii and Kauai.

During the dedication ceremony for the expanded facility, TGC recognized Maui General Manager Mustafa Demirbag on the anniversary of his 18 years of service to the company. TGC has been serving the Maui community for the past 47 years and now employs 23 energy professionals to serve customers on the island.

In TGC's spirit of giving back to the communities it serves, in conjunction with the dedication of its new storage facility, the company presented a check for $5,000 to Hale Makua Health Services. The organization's mission is to provide excellence in health care in their home and in the homes of its clients. Hale Makua CEO Tony Kreig commented, "TGC is a trusted partner in the Maui community and across the state of Hawaii. Their contribution to Hale Makua Services will help to ensure that our kupuna receive the care and respect they deserve."
