2018 Propane Days

Register Today for Propane Days 2018!

Does propane being included in OSHA’s crane rule seem ridiculous? Or ever wondered why we can’t ship American propane from one US port to another because of the Jones Act? Or why doesn’t Congress consistently pass tax credits for alternative fuels like propane? If you say “Yes!” to any of these questions, then we need you at Propane Days!

Register today for Propane Days 2018, and join hundreds of your colleagues in Washington, DC, on June 5-6 to educate legislators about propane and their need to take action for our industry. Early bird registration of $99 is available until May 14, then the price increases to $149.

And be sure to take advantage of special room rates at our host hotel, the Renaissance Washington Downtown Hotel. (If you have difficulty reserving a room online, call 800-468-3571 and request the National Propane Gas Association rate.) The group rate is available until May 14 or until the block is sold out.

Also register today for one of NPGA’s webinars to get informed on the three big issues we’ll be talking about during our Capitol Hill visits! Each webinar will be held regularly on Thursdays at 3 p.m. Eastern. 

Here’s the schedule and registration links:

May 10 – Exempting Propane Shipments from the Jones Act

May 17 – Extending Tax Credits for Propane

May 24 – Crane Rule

Pennsylvania is a Leader in Propane Autogas Buses

Propane powered School Buses are making an impact across the United States. More school districts have discovered that environmentally-friendly propane autogas offers the lowest cost of ownership available, year-round reliability and significantly reduced emissions.

Over 14,000 propane autogas school buses are in use across the country, with 831 on the roads in Pennsylvania. The Keystone State ranks fourth overall, with Texas (2,600), California (1,249) and Oregon (865) ranking as the top three.

Propane autogas school buses feature many advantages over diesel buses. One advantage is the reduction of noise pollution. The Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association invites parents, school officials and interested citizens to take the audio propane bus quiz by sitting in the driver’s seat to experience how much quieter propane buses operate.

Parents, guardians, and educators can make a positive impact on students’ future by advocating for propane powered buses. Think about how much time the student in your life spends on a school bus. While many students take the bus every weekday, we do not often talk about the quality of their buses, or how buses affect learning and our communities. Download this toolkit for tips on how to advocate to your school district about propane autogas buses.

School Transportation Professionals have the power to create change for students. Not only do propane autogas school buses have the lowest total cost-of-ownership, putting money right back into the educational system; they offer proven performance from the brands they know. Discover the cost savings by using the Propane Autogas Calculator.

“Propane autogas is proven to be the best value for school buses,” stated Shelby Bell, Executive Director for the Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association. “It’s affordability alone makes it a smarter alternative to conventional fuels. Add to that the many benefits provided for children, communities, and our planet, and it’s no wonder more school districts are choosing propane autogas every day.”
