Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2014
The Propane Council of Texas—a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the use of cleaner-burning, domestically produced propane—is offering incentives to Texas businesses who upgrade their fleet vehicles to the globally-recognized alternative fuel. The Propane Council of Texas (ProCOT) now offers up to a $7,500 incentive per new propane vehicle purchased or converted to propane autogas by a private fleet. This is an increase from what was previously allowed for aftermarket conversions. The program cap is $15,000 per private fleet. In return for the incentive(s), vehicle incentive recipients will be required to provide data on their business fleet.
“The program provides seed money for Texas businesses who are introducing propane autogas into their fleet for the first time,” said Jackie Mason, Education and Marketing Director for the Propane Council of Texas (ProCOT). “The Council believes businesses that demo the vehicle in their fleet will clearly see the advantages and continue to adopt propane into their fleet without any further incentives.”
Some of the benefits of propane autogas include fuel cost savings, lower harmful emissions, and reduced vehicle maintenance due to propane’s high-octane rating. Plus, propane is an American made alternative fuel, with two-thirds of the nation’s supply being produced right here in the Lone Star State.
Many private fleets across Texas are already fueling with propane autogas, including delivery and service companies, shuttle services, taxis, telecommunications companies and landscapers. Since 2010, the Propane Council of Texas has provided incentives to business fleets that have powered their vehicles with propane autogas. Some past incentive recipients include: ARS, Admiral Linen & Uniform, Primetime Gutters, and ThyssenKrupp Elevator.
