The upgrade marks eight Love’s locations across the country that use solar power to fuel operations.
Trillium, one of the USA’s leading providers of alternative fuel systems and renewable fuels, recently converted three Love’s Travel Stops in Illinois to solar energy. The new solar-powered Love’s sites are located at Hamel, Kankakee and Knoxville, according to a press release.
The solar energy systems in Illinois were designed and built by Trillium, a member of the Love’s Family of Companies. The upgrade marks eight Love’s locations across the country that use solar power to fuel operations.
The solar power systems are interconnected with each location and will offset the electrical load consumed from the stores. Excess power produced will be exported to each city’s power grid via a net metering program offered by the local electric utilities.
Founded in 1964 and headquartered in Oklahoma City, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores is the USA’s leading travel stop network with more than 550 locations in 41 states.
