SunPower Biodiesel is celebrating the one-year anniversary of their retail pump in Cumberland, Wisconsin today.

One year ago, SunPower Biodiesel emerged into the retail energy sector by opening their first fueling station in Cumberland selling high biodiesel blends, including B99 & B20. According to the company, SunPower started its sales with local farmers, “who quickly saw the benefits of using high biodiesel blends in their equipment; cooler (and quieter) running engines, better lubricity, higher cetane and less expensive compared to counterpart #2 diesel.” SunPower is now supplying trucking fleets, school buses, county highway departments, local business, and large oil companies looking to expand their offerings.

In celebration of the anniversary today, SunPower is holding open house at its Cumberland production facility from 1pm – 4pm.
