What most impresses Lindsay about propane is the supply: “It’s amazing. Maybe I’m just lucky, but we use a lot of propane during the drying season. You can call those guys and there’ll be a truck in your yard in an hour or a few hours. We’ve never had to shut something down waiting for propane.”
“For us, it was really about trying to maximize propane wherever we could in the home. It’s single source, fairly clean and environmentally friendly. So, we wanted to be able to use it wherever we could.”
“We started exploring a switch to propane probably in the fall of 2013,” says Ron. “We used a demo bus and put it through some severe cold trials. It performed exemplarily. Now we’ve been using it for about eight years,” with 28 of the 34 buses currently running on propane.
