Washington (Vocus) March 6, 2010
The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) will showcase real-world results of propane-fueled vehicles in the Propane Pavilion at the 2010 Green Truck Summit, March 9-10, at America’s Center in St. Louis.
Jack Roush, chairman of ROUSH Enterprises, and Roy Willis, president and CEO of PERC, will give a presentation on how propane can help achieve role in energy self-sufficiency in North America, on March 10 at 8 a.m.
Roush, well known for his wins as a NASCAR team owner and for developing propane-fueled fleet trucks with support from PERC, will be available for press interviews and autograph signings in the pavilion. Representatives from AmeriGas, Ferrellgas, Heritage Propane, and CleanFuel USA will be on hand in the Propane Pavilion to answer questions on refueling and vehicle technology. And propane-fueled work trucks will be available for ride-and-drive opportunities from 12 to 4:30 p.m. both days.
Today, propane fuels more than 14 million on-road vehicles worldwide. Clean-burning propane is an attractive cost-saving alternative to gasoline and diesel for business fleet owners. It is the third most commonly used engine fuel, after gasoline and diesel, in the United States.
The Green Truck Summit is part of the Work Truck Show at the National Truck Equipment Association’s annual convention.
The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) promotes the safe, efficient use of odorized propane gas as a preferred energy resource.
