This project, entitled Delivering Clean Air in Denver: Propane Trucks and Infrastructure in Mail Delivery Application will purchase and deploy five propane-powered delivery trucks along with propane infrastructure provided through AmeriGas in the metro Denver area.
Our demonstration fleet, Hi-Pro Trucking, will deploy the ultra-low NOx Roush CleanTech Class 6 straight box propane trucks along USPS mail delivery routes in Commerce City. In partnership, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will track data and performance measurements of the propane trucks; producing a case study report at the end of the project period to demonstrate real-world applications of propane fuel as an alternative to diesel-fueled trucks. Denver Metro Clean Cities and the Propane Research & Education Council will provide educational materials and public-facing educational events to communicate the progress of the project.
The Ford gasoline trucks, will be upfitted with a propane system developed by ROUSH CleanTech.
