Pearson Fuels Celebrates Opening of First Ethanol Station in San Jacinto Valley, May 21 in Beaumont, CA

SAN DIEGO, CA — May 21, 2010 — Pearson Fuels will join Oak Valley Chevron to celebrate the grand opening of the first Ethanol (E85) alternative fuel station in Beaumont, CA with special ribbon-cutting ceremonies on May 21. The grand opening is set for 11:00 a.m. at Oak Valley Chevron, 866 Oak Valley Parkway in Beaumont, CA 92223. The location is the first E85 station in the San Jacinto Valley and only the second open to the public in Riverside County.

The festivities are being held in conjunction with Chevron’s celebration of the opening of an EXTRAMILE? convenience store and the Beaumont Chamber of Commerce. Attendees can enjoy free food and drinks from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Feel Good Fueling Up? with Pearson selling E85 to the public for only $.85 per gallon from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The event will feature a ceremonial ribbon cutting with Chamber officials at 11:00 a.m.

The E85 is compatible with over 25,000 Flex Fuel Vehicles in Riverside County and with over 50,000 Flex Fuel Vehicles in the Los Angeles basin. Oak Valley Chevron is part of Pearson Fuels statewide roll out of new E85 stations throughout California, starting with its original station in San Diego. The E85 facilities were partially funded by the California Air Resources Board.

Mike Lewis, co-owner of Pearson Fuels said, “It is exciting for us to see the progress and interest in alternative fuel infrastructure over the last few years because we have all been recently reminded of the harm that petroleum exploration can pose to the environment and our nation’s dependence on foreign oil is the greatest challenge our children will face. Alternative fuels are always coming next year, then the year after that, but this is a real station with real alternative fuel, open to the public 24 hours a day that will displace petroleum with every gallon pumped.”

Pearson brought the first Ethanol station to the state of California when it opened its San Diego station in 2003 as the world’s first Alternative Fuel Station featuring 10 different fuels. Today it specializes in bringing alternative fuels to the public throughout California.
