Delivering Clean Air in Denver: Propane Trucks and Infrastructure in Mail Delivery Application

Denver Metro Clean Cities Coalition is launching an Advanced Vehicle Technologies research pilot project funded through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy.

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.
