Suburban Propane, U-Haul partner to offer renewable propane

November 11, 2020 By    

Suburban Propane Partners established an agreement with U-Haul to provide renewable propane in California.

The arrangement with U-Haul aligns with Suburban Propane’s “Go Green with Suburban Propane” initiative, the propane retailer says, which focuses on its commitment to advocate for the clean-burning attributes of propane and invest in innovative solutions to pave the way to zero-carbon emissions.

Renewable propane, used to power over-the-road vehicles and forklifts, is made using renewable resources such as certain biomass feedstocks. Renewable propane also possesses lower carbon intensity than traditional propane, with no change in performance and handling, according to Suburban Propane.

When compared to gasoline and diesel, propane and renewable propane can significantly reduce harmful contributors to greenhouse gases.

“We are very excited to align with U-Haul to supply renewable propane in support of our collective efforts to lower carbon emissions in the state of California,” says Nandini Sankara, spokesperson at Suburban Propane. “This arrangement, along with our recent investment in Oberon Fuels, is part of our continued commitment to developing innovative solutions to reduce the nation’s carbon footprint, particularly at a time when so many states have established aggressive carbon reduction targets over the next few decades.”

John Barnett, propane program manager at U-Haul adds: “The introduction of renewable propane is a welcome next step in the transportation-energy industry. U-Haul continues to be a leader in pursuing sustainable solutions, and by partnering with Suburban Propane, we’re able to serve a large portion of California’s propane users with this green initiative.”

Suburban Propane is a nationwide distributor of propane, fuel oil and related products and services, as well as a marketer of natural gas and electricity, servicing more than 1 million customers through its 700 locations across 41 states.
