Motorboat engines are now available that have lower emissions and are cheaper to run than conventional models.

Dave White from the New York Sea Grant talks about new propane-powered outboards. Click on the picture for his interview on 7 News This Morning.

There are 2.5 and 5 horsepower engines that use 16-ounce propane canisters, plus 9.9 and 15 horsepower engines that hook up to regular size propane tanks.

There is no risk of gasoline spills, a 97 percent reduction in emissions, and the fuel is about half the cost of gasoline.

Important Information Inside!

Dear Friends,

I’m writing to inform you of the current happenings within the propane industry, as well as how we at Greene’s are complying with the situation. Even before winter made its way into the U.S., a substantially greater than usual amount of propane was used in October-November to dry corn crops throughout the country. Then, as you may know, we here in Michigan as well as most all of the United States, have been experiencing colder than normal temperatures this winter season. The combination of these two items along with isolated sub-zero weather, severe ice storms, and continued snow falls across the U.S. has left the country in a bit of a crisis in regards to home heating fuel inventories and delivery logistics.

We are all working harder than ever with our suppliers, logistics companies, and you our customers to continue to keep everyone with propane supply this winter. Supply companies and terminals have all been placed on allocations and are only allowing marketers to get 60-70% of their contracted winter volumes of propane. So, with the supply allocations from our suppliers and the continued logistics of having to travel farther to get propane, we will have to make smaller deliveries to all our customers in order to keep everyone with supply. This means that instead of filling your tank to its maximum capacity of 85%, that we will be filling to say 50- 60% instead. This will help us to continue to keep all of our customers with propane for the remainder of this winter season. I want to assure you that we will continue to keep you warm this winter. We will also be suspending our Regulatory Compliance Fee until the allocations are lifted.

There are things you as a customer can do to help us as well, and we would greatly appreciate your help in this situation. Items like conserving propane by lowering your thermostat by a few degrees or consuming less hot water will help. Another simple thing you can do to help us ensure you receive your delivery is to keep your driveway and access to your propane tank cleared and free of snow. By keeping your driveway and access to your tank clear, it helps us tremendously. It allows the delivery drivers to make their deliveries faster, as well as, safer.

I thank you for your help… and for your continued loyalty as a customer of Greene’s Gas Co.

Best Regards,

Jeremy Stanford
