Propane Education & Research Council
Funding Requested: $2,300,000.00 Total Project Cost: $2,550,000.00
Project Summary:

Partnerships with state entities is critical to the success of increasing awareness among consumers of the role propane can and does play in accelerating decarbonization efforts. This project provides funding to state entities for local media buys to support PERC’s environmental campaigns. Working together with a unified message, complementary reach, and increased frequency of amplifying these messages will allow for increased impact on our investment.

The goal of this project is two-fold:

1. Increase the awareness by consumers (homeowners) in propane country that propane currently plays a significant and impactful role in decarbonization efforts, while ensuring equity on the desired path to zero.

2. Engage the propane industry and inspire action to participate in this effort.

22933: 2021 Workforce Outreach Support

Applicant /

Primary Partner:

Propane Education & Research Council
Funding Requested: $210,000.00 Total Project Cost: $210,000.00
Project Summary:

This project is a continuation of the 2020 Workforce Outreach docket and related programs and will continue to focus on creating awareness of the propane industry as a viable career choice for several segments of the potential workforce (students, veterans, and those transitioning out of school) through partnerships with states and marketers and creating the tools and resources to best implement the program at a local level. The three key elements of the program will be:

1. Develop a School Educational Kit that states & marketers can use when volunteering/presenting to students in order to educate them about a future in the propane industry.

2. Develop a paid media campaign to promote propane industry opportunities to prospective job seekers.

3. Creation of a workforce outreach webinar series to identify key issues facing the industry, identify subject matter experts, and establish a monthly webinar series. Should there be enough interest, this could be transitioned to an in-person meeting

22805: Propane-Battery Hybrid Almond Harvesting Machine

Applicant /

Primary Partner:

Terzo Power Systems
Funding Requested: $97,185.00 Total Project Cost: $331,691.00
Project Summary:

This project will demonstrate how propane can be paired with electric hybrid technology to offer ultra clean off-road solutions for agriculture and construction applications. This propane-electric hybrid technology will demonstrate the ability of propane to be in the clean energy solution conversation in the most stringent regulated states.  This technology will be demonstrated in the agriculture sector and will have additional application in construction equipment and other off-road mobile applications.

Specifically, this project will demonstrate how a propane-battery powered almond harvesting machine functions as a cleaner alternative to its diesel-powered counterpart. The implementation of a propane engine functioning in this capacity is solely of a genset nature. It would be utilized to spin a generator, applying charge to a 400vdc battery pack. This in turn allows for direct and independent control of electric motors mated to the hydraulic pumps responsible for machine propulsion and harvesting duties.

With this approach, the machine can operate in "all-electric" mode until the battery voltage depletes to a predefined level. At which point, the propane engine will turn on to begin the battery charging process. This leads to benefits of reduced engine emissions and operating modes for different conditions. For example, in a machine-idle state or short-distance transport, the engine can turn off and capitalize on the benefits mentioned.
