What comes to mind when you hear the term “fossil fuels?”
Many of us can’t help but to have negative thoughts: oil spills, war, global warming, acid rain, black lung, etc. Unfortunately, the list goes on.
The good news is that not all fossil fuels have a negative environmental impact.
Vision Financial Group, Inc. wants to help increase reliance on domestically sourced energy, specifically Natural Gas and its byproducts like Propane, away from imported foreign oil which costs us all dearly at the pump and requires a heavy price on the battlefield.
Our team believes that a transition to CNG and LNG, arguably America’s most abundant, safe and clean fuel resource, is not only a strong step towards environmentally responsible energy policy; we believe that transitioning to Natural Gas is critical to strengthening our economy, saving on defense spending, and getting more Americans back to work.
Our equipment lease funding appetite includes both large and small transactions to include both on and off-balance sheet structures.
We will consider funding almost any type of capital equipment acquisition and investment used to help fuel more CNG / LNG and Propane consumption to include: fleet & vehicle, dual fuel conversion, power generation, facility upfit (methane detectors, air handlers, etc.), infrastructure investment, and/or logistical equipment needs to include water supply, transport and fuel storage.
These alternative energy sources are safe, clean and cost effective and provide fuel for many commercial and consumer applications.
New NG and Propane-fueled vehicles can meet the very tough Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) standards.
Because NG and Propane are fossil fuels, they sometimes gets an undeserved bad rap - especially when compared to electricity. When making such a comparison it is important to understand the facts.
It is certainly true that an electric motor gives off little or no harmful emissions. However, when considering emissions or the true impact of choosing one energy source over another; it is important to understand and take into account the difference between primary energy sources and secondary energy sources.
When deciding between Propane and electricity, for example, it is beneficial to understand where these energy sources originate. Energy from Propane is direct while energy from electricity is oftentimes harnessed from a primary energy source such as coal, natural gas, or petroleum. In other words, electricity is generated by expending other sources of energy that may consequently give off harmful emissions. Unlike NG and Propane, usable amounts of electricity do not occur naturally.
VFG is proud to serve the Propane and NG industries.
