Propane distribution company Blue Star Gas has partnered with Wine Country Balloons to send a gigantic hot air balloon skyward over Sonoma County, Calif. The versatility of propane – whether as an alternative fuel for transportation or other energy source – is central to the campaign, Blue Star Gas says.
Wine Country Balloons, which has been a Blue Star Gas customer for more than 20 years, will use the new balloon to carry up to 20 passengers during flights over Sonoma and Lake Counties.
Blue Star Gas serves markets in California, Oregon and Washington. Company president Jeff Stewart highlighted the various uses of propane for both residential and commercial applications.
‘It's the same efficient energy that now fuels the Blue Star Gas balloon and, incidentally, also an EPA-certified, clean-burning alternative motor fuel,’ he says.
