RRC Hosts Fleet Operator Workshops on Propane Vehicle Incentives

10/22/2012

 AUSTIN ––The Texas Railroad Commission—Texas’ top energy agency— is hosting a series of workshops statewide to help fleet operators take advantage of grant opportunities for propane-fueled vehicles. The grants help offset the upfront cost of propane vehicles and propane refueling infrastructure.

Commissioner David Porter said, “Seventy-five Texas school districts run propane school buses and save millions of dollars in fuel costs every year.”

Commissioner Buddy Garcia said, “At these workshops, participants can ride the latest ultralow-emission propane vehicles and talk directly with fleet managers about refueling, incentives, cost-effectiveness and availability.”
