GRAHAM, NC — The Southeast Propane Alliance Technical Education Center (SEPATEC), in partnership with RegO, has announced the RegO Training Area. This state-of-the-art facility is dedicated to testing and training new products related to propane and propane autogas. This initiative marks a significant milestone in the advancement of eco-friendly and efficient fuel solutions for the automotive industry. 

The Rego Training Area represents a significant investment in cutting-edge technology and training programs. John Jessup, president & CEO of the Southeast Propane Alliance (SEPA), is the main point of contact for further details on project investment. He shared his thoughts on the project, stating, “The propane industry must adopt autogas in our own fleets for its environmental and economic benefits. Autogas engines already meet the 2027 and 2030 emission standards, and we need to position ourselves to take advantage of this opportunity to grow our industry.” 

Rego's strategic partnership with SEPA and SEPATEC solidifies a collaborative effort to promote innovation and sustainability in the autogas industry. 


The Rego Training Area's primary purpose is to provide a state-of-the-art platform for testing and training on new products related to propane and propane autogas, while leveraging a strategic partnership among the industry and SEPATEC. Cody Reeves, LPG & NH3 product manager at RegO and SEPA’s 2024 Supplier of the Year, expressed his commitment to the partnership, stating, “Rego is dedicated to the industry and to revolutionizing the autogas industry. We are enthusiastic about the potential of groundbreaking initiatives such as the Rego Training Area and look forward to the positive impact it will have on the future of sustainable transportation and the propane industry as a whole.” 

This groundbreaking project began in early spring and is now in the construction phase, expected to conclude in the next few months. The success and progress of this project can be attributed to the dedication and expertise of key individuals, including John Peña, Director of Education at SEPATEC; Bob Moore, an instructor at SEPATEC; and Cody Reeves, the LPG & NH3 product manager at RegO.
