Bonny Eagle Schools Grand Opening of the Largest School Bus Refueling Station in Maine Makes History with Renewable Propane!

PGANE member Pitstop Fuels/Stone Road Energy hosted a grand opening celebration of the largest propane Autogas school bus dispenser in Maine on May 12th. Tucker Perkins, President and CEO of the Propane Education & Research Council, joined PGANE leaders as well as leaders from Bonny Eagle Schools.

This occasion also marked the first delivery of renewable propane into the state of Maine!

Ray Energy delivered a 5% renewable propane blend to fuel the Bonny Eagle propane school buses. This use of renewable propane in school buses, means that Maine students are the first ones east of the Rocky Mountains to transport students to school with renewable propane.

Bonny Eagle MSAD #5 is leading by example, at the forefront of Maine’s energy initiative commitment to educating and engaging Mainers to choose clean energy options. PGANE congratulates Pitstop Fuels/Stone Road Energy on their leadership and initiative!

“PGANE has the most innovative members, and I am so proud to lead this association. I put out a challenge to introduce renewable propane in every New England state, and Stone Road Energy and Ray Energy go above and beyond, and put renewable propane in the first school bus east of the rocky mountains, making Maine the third state in the nation to use renewable propane in school transportation!” said Leslie Anderson, President and CEO of PGANE.
