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.
