February 16, 2006

In preparation for this year’s Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Conference and Expo, nominations are now being accepted for the 2006 PROPANE Exceptional Energy Fleet Awards.

The PROPANE Exceptional Energy® Fleet Awards is an industry-sponsored event recognizing the achievements of fleet applications who use propane for their vehicle fleets and promote awareness of propane as a cost-effective, safe, and clean-burning motor fuel.

Each year, the propane industry awards several fleets with this honor at the National Clean Cities Congress and Expo. This year’s conference is taking place May 7-10 in Phoenix, AZ.  Award winners will be announced and showcased at the conference on Tuesday, May 9, and their businesses or organizations will be promoted by the propane industry throughout the year.

This year, nominations should be focused on the following categories:

  • Private Fleet: Any business using propane, with applications including commercial delivery fleets and taxi fleets, among others. Public or Transit Fleets: Municipalities using propane in county, municipal, school bus and/or transit applications.
  • Innovative Fleet Applications: Any fleet using propane to reduce overall operating costs, to improve environmental stewardship, and to improve its business.
  • Airport Applications: This includes airport shuttles, ground service equipment, and other propane applications at airports.
