United Parcel Service Inc. said Wednesday it would invest $70 million to add 1,000 propane-powered delivery trucks to its fleet.

UtilityTree‘s insight:

UPS said it worked with the Propane Education & Research Council, a nonprofit propane technology incubator, to secure the necessary regulatory certifications. 

The company had tested 20 such trucks last winter in Georgia before announcing it would expand its fleet. UPS said the new trucks are expected to travel more than 25 million miles and will displace 3.5 million gallons of gasoline and diesel per year.
