Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 10, 2007
HBH Gas Systems and Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. have reached an agreement to install a Central Propane Distribution System at the Hornsby Glen development in Austin, Texas. At final buildout, Hornsby Glen will reach 538 single-family homes. The entire 108-acre community will be fueled by economical, environmentally friendly propane from the Central Propane Distribution System.
HBH Gas Systems has a strategic partnership with Ferrellgas, one of the nation's largest propane companies. Together, they provide developments located off of the natural gas grid with clean-burning, economical gas delivered from centralized propane tanks. HBH Gas Systems will oversee the design and implementation of the system at Hornsby Glen, while Ferrellgas will own and operate the system. Ferrellgas and HBH will make all of the necessary provisions for permanent underground metered propane gas service for this sustainable and environmentally-responsible community.
Hornsby Glen is being developed by Main Street Homes, Austin's largest locally owned home-building company. The developer/homebuilder wanted the marketing advantages of dual-fuels with gas supplied and operated by a large, competent company that has demonstrated sufficient capacity to serve a development of this size. The HBH Gas Systems and Ferrellgas team has unsurpassed expertise in the implementation of systems designed to serve off-grid developments.
Central Gas Systems offer the developer the option of steering their off-grid developments that lack natural gas away from carbon-heavy electricity toward more sustainable development fueled by gas. These systems are economical, saving homeowners about 50% on their heating bills when compared to all-electric heating. Moreover, a recent American Gas Association study showed that most homeowners demand the luxury of dual fuels and gas for their cooking and heating requirements. Homeowners at Hornsby Glen will have the peace-of-mind associated with using an alternative green fuel as classified by the Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act. In fact, one home fueled by an HBH central gas system in lieu of electricity effectively offsets the annual carbon emissions from one average vehicle.
The first phase of building at Hornsby Glen will consist of 120 lots. The Central Propane System will expand as the development continues to grow past its first phase. Central Gas Systems provide domestically produced gas to each individual home from a single centralized propane tank; it is delivered, metered, billed, and consumed in a manner virtually identical to natural gas. Furthermore, these systems allow for the implementation of high efficiency gas appliances in place of low efficiency, grid-hogging, carbon-heavy electric appliances. Each home in the Hornsby Glen development that is fueled by the Central Gas System will effectively offset 8.5 tons of Carbon Dioxide that would have been produced through coal-generated electricity.
