Ray Energy Brings First Renewable Propane to the Northeast

In a first for New York State and the Northeast, Ray Energy announces the arrival of 100% fossil-free, low-carbon, renewable propane, providing a cleaner, alternative fuel to gas, diesel, and electric.

Renewable propane, made from biomass and waste products, is free of fossil fuels. This reduces waste deposited in landfills and is 100% sustainable. It is sourced and produced entirely in the United States, providing jobs, and reducing energy dependence on other countries.

When used as a fuel for vehicles (autogas), renewable propane has a carbon intensity of 19 percent which is five times better than conventional diesel and gasoline and less than half the carbon intensity of electricity. At the point of combustion, renewable propane is carbon neutral, making it much cleaner than other energy sources.

“Sixty percent of the US electricity supply is generated by coal and natural gas. Of that, the production of electricity generates the second largest share of GHG emissions,” said Ken Ray, President of Ray Energy. “We continually look for innovative products and technology solutions that improve energy efficiency, performance, and lower emissions. Renewable propane addresses those issues,” said Ken Ray, President of Ray Energy.

Since the chemical makeup of renewable propane is the same as conventional propane (with the same output), it is compatible with existing propane installations; There is no need to change out or modify vehicle engines, tanks, or heating systems. For homeowners and building owners, this offers a green alternative with a lower carbon footprint and significant savings when compared with replacing traditional HVAC systems with all-electric heat pumps and appliances.

“Renewable propane is a viable fuel alternative for heat and power to achieve the climate goals set forth by the state,” said Bill Overbaugh, Interim Executive Director, New York Propane Gas Association (NYPGA).

Renewable propane can help to address climate change:

  • 100% sustainable, made of biomass and waste
  • Free of fossil fuels
  • Less than 50% of the carbon intensity of electricity
  • Sourced and produced in the USA
  • Drop-in fuel (no equipment change-out required)
