WHY
The US Congress challenged Americans to reduce gasoline consumption by 20 percent over the next decade. In turn, Governor Schwarzenegger challenged California to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels sold in the state by at least 10 percent by 2020. A bellwether state in environmental protection and smart energy, California city leaders and fleet managers are looking to meet these goals by evaluating alternative fuel options; and more are turning to a proven option that is domestic and available today – propane. Research has found that if a select group of fleet owners switched 10% of their vehicles to propane, more than 830 million gallons of conventional fuel could be displaced by 2017. Along with providing a solution for reducing dependence on foreign oil, propane-powered vehicles are more cost effective, cleaner burning and environmentally friendly than traditional gasoline or diesel fuels.
