The Western Propane Gas Association (WPGA), a trade and membership service organization that represents propane marketers throughout California, says renewable propane is on track to play a major role in the state’s green energy future, with the industry targeting 2030 for supplying the state with a 100% sustainable energy source.
The news, along with the unveiling of WPGA’s sustainability statement, comes during Climate Week 2020 and on the heels of Governor Newsom’s announced agenda to accelerate California’s climate change goals.
“Renewable propane’s benefits are amplified when coupled with ultra-low NOx engines that are 90% cleaner than the EPA’s most stringent standard or combined with innovative appliance technologies that can reduce NOx emissions by up to 80%,” says Joy Alafia, president of WPGA. “Our industry is excited to serve as an integral part of California’s effort to fight climate change. We look forward to working with customers who seek to reduce their carbon footprint and policy makers as they navigate a path to achieve California’s environmental goals.”
