Program to Provide Funding to Create Propane-Powered Vehicle Programs

June 07, 2005

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A partnership between the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) and the Department of Energy Clean Cities (DOECC) is funding projects to create propane-powered vehicle programs that increase the number of propane gallons sold, reduce America's dependence on foreign oil, and reduce pollution from conventionally powered vehicles, according to Sandra Loi, projects coordinator for the Propane Education & Research Council. PERC and DOECC, each contributing $100,000 to the program, allow the propane industry and DOE Clean Cities to develop deployment programs to stimulate market growth. Projects using propane systems technologies for on-road vehicles as well as off-road applications are eligible. All applications using propane for the transportation market will be considered, but a high priority will be placed on applications addressing the following areas: airport development projects, on-road applications, idle reduction technologies, and lawn & garden equipment.Applications are now being accepted. The number of awards and distribution of funds are subject to availability of funds and the quality of applications submitted, but no single award will be more than $50,000.For more information, contact Sandra Loi, Projects Coordinator, Propane Education & Research Council, [email protected],, or at (202) 452-8975.
