The Propane Council of Texas to Take Part in Milestone Clean Cities Celebration
The Propane Council of Texas (ProCOT) is proud to take part in the Lone Star Clean Fuels Alliance (LSCFA) 20th Anniversary on April 15, 2014 at the Palmer Events Center. Not only is the event in celebration of the alliance’s anniversary, but it is also a precursor to Earth Day.
Lone Star Clean Fuels Alliance, formerly known as Central Texas Clean Cities, is a Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Cities Coalition. Clean Cities Coalitions are strategically located all across the country and work within non-attainment and near-attainment areas to reduce our reliance on foreign oil, promote clean air, and encourage the use of alternative fuels in the transportation sector.
The Propane Council of Texas will be participating as a sponsor and exhibitor, showcasing cleaner-burning on and off-road vehicles, as well as, helping recognizing clean air advocates past and present during the awards luncheon, including current and former policymakers and city leaders.
“Our local clean cities coalition, the LSCFA, has been a strident voice for alternative fuel and electric vehicles alike in Central Texas,” says Jackie Mason, Education & Marketing Director. “They’ve helped promote cleaner-burning propane-powered school buses, getting dirtier, older diesel buses off of Texas roads, encouraged propane commercial mowers allowing landscapers and parks to mow on Ozone Action Days, and have helped facilitate grants to build alternative fuel refueling stations.”
