WASHINGTON — The National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) hosted its annual Propane Days in Washington, D.C., from June 2-4. The Southeast Propane Alliance (SEPA) participated with over 30 members in attendance. They successfully held over 18 meetings with elected officials from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. 

Tyler Misel, SEPA chairman and director of operations and safety at Georgia Gas Distributors Inc., said, “We had a successful visit to Capitol Hill, where we received overwhelming support from all of our elected officials and their staff for the industry's critical initiatives.” 

The propane industry plays a significant role in the economies of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia combined, with an estimated economic impact of over $4 billion. Collectively, these three states account for a combined total of 687 million gallons of propane. 


John Jessup, the president and CEO of Southeast Propane Alliance, expressed his excitement about this year's participation, which he attributes to a diverse, vibrant, and engaged membership. 

"Our SEPA members work tirelessly throughout the Southeast, not only for our industry but also for the communities they serve," said Jessup. "Advocating for them on Capitol Hill is just another example of the care that they have for their customers and communities.”
