At this year’s Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Dallas, the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) will showcase propane autogas technology and its continued growth among medium- and heavy-duty fleets.
“With the growing number of EPA- and CARB-certified, propane-autogas-powered vehicles available, propane autogas has become a proven solution that offers an increasing number of fleets, a lower total cost of ownership, a clean emissions profile, and affordable and scalable infrastructure options,” says Roy Willis, PERC’s President and CEO.
PERC’s investments in advancing medium-duty technologies will be on display at the show in booth 407. Featured will be a Roush CleanTech Ford F-650, a BSI diesel substitution unit, and refueling dispensers by Superior Energy and CleanFuel USA.
At the show, attendees can also learn about propane autogas’ growth in the school bus industry. Texas Commissioner of Energy Michael Williams heads the Texas Education Agency, which oversees the state’s pre-kindergarten through high school education for more than 5 million students enrolled in both traditional public schools and charter schools.
“Williams has spent years in public service, and is a notable figure dedicated to creating a healthier environment for school children. It says a lot that he supports propane autogas as a reliable solution to reducing emissions,” Willis says. “Propane autogas not only diminishes air pollution, but school districts making the switch from increasingly complex diesel buses also report seeing significantly lower operating costs due to less maintenance, fuel additives, and parts replacement.”
