Revere Gas featured in farm technology video
Jim Trotter, director of marketing for Hartfield-based Revere Gas, Inc., is featured in a new video about an agricultural propane research program.
Trotter said segments of the video were shot at the company’s Providence Forge facility as well as at James River Winery, which has benefited from the propane research program that Trotter promotes in the video.
Other segments of the video feature Chris Kowalski, marketing and sales manager with Osterman Propane in Whitinsville, Mass., and Gordon Cunningham, owner of Cunningham Gas of West Helena, Ark. Trotter said he has not met the other gentlemen featured in the video, with their segments shot at facilities in other states.
In the video, Trotter said he and the other two propane marketers describe the Propane Education & Research Council’s Propane FEED program, in which farmers test the performance of new propane-fueled technology in agricultural equipment such as irrigation engines and grain dryers.
Producers who enroll in the program are offered a financial incentive in exchange for recording performance data of the equipment being tested, said Gregg Walker, a PERC spokesman.
