Retail Outlets for Propane Autogas as Part of Federal Grant
CleanFuel USA said Tuesday that it’s completed 85 retail propane autogas fueling stations, spread across 13 states, via a $12 million grant from the Department of Energy’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Texas State Technical College – TSTC – served as the lead grantee.
“The installation of these 85 sites is a true step forward for the propane industry,” CleanFuel USA founder and managing partner Curtis Donaldson said in a release. “For more than 20 years we have shared a vision of installing public autogas stations across the country, and the rollout of these stations contributes to that vision.”
The majority of the 85 stations are located near heavily trafficked roadways, existing fueling stations, major airports and home improvement stores, CleanFuel said.
Vehicle Conversions, Too
The last to be completed is at an Exxon Mobile station in Charleston, W.Va.
The grant handled by TSTC also helped offset the cost of nearly 700 vehicle conversions and new propane autogas vehicle purchases for fleets as wide-ranging as Via Metropolitan Transit in San Antonio and the City of Springfield, Ill.
Propane autogas is also known as LPG, for liquefied petroleum gas.
