The NC Propane Club works with local gas companies to provide its members with the lowest rates for propane gas every year. Just like bulk wearhouse clubs, NCPC uses strength in numbers to get more for its members.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing rulemaking consistent with the Energy Independence Security Act to reduce energy generated from fossil fuel consumption in new federal buildings and renovated federal buildings, reports the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA).
The association notes that DOE is required by statute to reduce fossil fuel energy consumption by 65% by 2015. In addition, total fossil fuel dependency is required to be eliminated by 2030. The recent proposed rulemaking does allow long-term energy contracts that promise to use renewable energy sources as a way to meet further reductions for years 2015 through 2030.
NPGA submitted comments requesting that DOE re-issue its rulemaking as an Advance Notice of Rulemaking, “allowing many unanswered questions to be addressed and industry a second opportunity to provide public comments.” For additional information, contact Robert Elliott, NPGA director of regulatory affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
