Galva Holstein Ag will celebrate the opening of their Renewable Energy Center located at 211 North Main Street in Holstein, Iowa with a tailgate party on May 5. The E85 and biodiesel fuels will be discounted 11 am to 2 pm that Tuesday.
According to the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, Galva Holstein’s Renewable Energy Center is one of the first stations to take advantage of the Renewable Fuels Promotional Assistance Program sponsored by the Iowa Corn Promotion Board, the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association and the Iowa Soybean Association. Through the Renewable Fuels Promotional Assistance Program, Iowa Corn and IRFA will partner with retailers for grand openings for E85 and ethanol blender dispensers and Iowa Soybean and IRFA will partner with retailers for grand openings for biodiesel dispensers.
Galva Holstein Ag started offering E85 in 2005. This is their third E85 fueling location. They look to add E85 stations in Storm Lake and Odebolt in the future.
“Galva Holstein Ag is a renewable energy leader for Northwest Iowa,” said Lucy Norton, IRFA Managing Director. “Through a commitment to biofuels promotion and consumer education, this small town business has built a loyal consumer following, driving sales that rival its big city competitors.”
