warm thoughts

The Massachusetts Propane Association met at Lin’s Propane Trucks last week to hear from area propane and oil marketers on proposed DEP regulations. The regulation discussed would cause a disastrous financial impact to the people of Massachusetts as well as industry professionals.

The Clean Heat Standard is a regulation that plans to raise the cost of energy in the Bay State to everyone. It also unfairly incentivizes Electricity over all fuels. Propane is actually cleaner today than our current electrical grid. In the future renewable propane will be even cleaner.

The MA Propane Association educated the representatives on the benefits of propane now and in the future. The attendees were as follows: MA Propane Association, Tim Johnson (Propane Plus), Jay Macedonio (Columbus Energies), Evan and Kathryn Pittsley (JaySan Gas), Doug & Shelly Plissey and Brian Lehane (JaySan Gas).

Massachusetts Representatives that were in attendance: Steven Howitt, Patricia Haddad, Norman Orall, Carol Doherty as well as representatives from the office of Senator Mark Pacheco, Rep. Paul Schmid and Senator Michael Rodrigues. A special thanks goes out to all the representatives who attended as well as Lins Propane Trucks of Dighton, MA for sponsoring the event.

The MA Propane Association represents all member propane marketers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
