Schwan’s Home Service Delivers With Propane-Powered Trucks

This week’s Clean Cities success story takes us to Eagan, Minnesota, home to the largest depot for Schwan’s Home Service, a food delivery subsidiary of The Schwan Food Company. Schwan’s uses propane-powered delivery trucks to distribute products across the United States. The company has been using propane vehicles since the 1970s and is now a member of the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Clean Fleets Partnership.

Produced by Maryland Public Television’s MotorWeek program, this short segment will air on PBS stations nationwide starting Jan. 18, 2014 (in the regular weekly MotorWeek timeslot on your local PBS station). MotorWeek is also available on Velocity by Discovery.

For show times in your area, check the MotorWeek and Discovery Channel websites. While many local PBS affiliates are still broadcasting in standard definition, viewers with newer widescreen televisions can watch the episode in high definition on Velocity by Discovery.
