Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS), a healthcare provider located in Spartanburg, S.C., has been finding success with propane autogas over the years.
In 2013, SRHS began looking for an alternative fuel option for its fleets in order to help the region meet emissions criteria. SRHS’ director of transportation services, Jimmy Riley, says, “The hospital had, from the president down, been looking at several different emissions reducing programs for our fleets, and autogas came out as the fuel of choice.”
SRHS started working with Alliance AutoGas (AAG) in March 2013. The hospital chose to convert cutaway (wheelchair-equipped) buses and courier vehicles first. AAG technicians performed the conversions on-site in one bay of the hospital’s existing garage and then trained SRHS fleet technicians to perform future maintenance. AAG also installed tanks and fueling infrastructure in 2014. On-site refueling includes large-capacity fuel storage tanks equipped with a pump, a meter and one or more dispensers.
