Bus firm to open propane station
Patsy’s Bus Sales plans a ribbon cutting Tuesday that is expected to include Mayor Jim Bouley, state environmental officials and clean air advocates.
The Patsy’s station will be at 112 Hall St., and be open 24 hours.
The Propane Education and Research Council estimates that 270,000 propane vehicles are on the road.
Schwan Frozen Foods, propane companies and school districts in Merrimack Valley and Cornish operate vehicles that run on propane, she said.
No major automakers manufacture vehicles that run on propane, she said. But companies make and sell kits that allow many models to be upfitted to propane.
She said the propane, a by-product of petroleum refining and natural gas, is domestically produced, clean and cheaper to run than gasoline.
