Harrisburg, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association (PAPGA), a member-focused trade association providing services that promote the state’s propane industry, has joined the Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance (PEIA), a broad-based coalition of labor, agriculture, manufacturing and other business interests that support private investment in pipeline and other energy infrastructure developments.
“Pennsylvania residents and businesses use propane because it’s a clean, efficient and versatile source of energy,” said Mike Mutter, PAPGA President. “However, our communities need a dependable and safe transportation system to ensure that they have access to propane and the other clean-burning fuels they’ve come to rely upon daily.
“Investing in energy infrastructure ensures that residents benefit from opportunities for in-demand careers and continue to have access to our affordable, homegrown resources,” Mike Mutter added. “Our members have made it abundantly clear they support essential pipeline projects that help to ensure a strong, sustainable economy for our state, and energy independence for our nation.”
PAPGA was formed in 1947 to offer opportunities to learn through training and networking with peers, and to aid with legislative issues that contribute to operating a safe and successful industry. In addition to its continued focus on education, networking and representing the interest of Pennsylvania’s propane businesses to the government, PAPGA also assists members in remaining current on topics vital to the propane industry.
The Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance was launched June 8, 2015 by the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and Delaware County Chamber of Commerce as the founding members. There are nearly two dozen PEIA members today.
