|Propane Teams Up with This Old House
Bryan Cordill, PERC’s director of business development in residential and commercial markets, visited Concord, Mass., last month to teach viewers of This Old House a thing or two about propane.
Bryan took part in two custom videos with Kevin O’Connor, the host of This Old House since 2003. They talked about the benefits of choosing propane for your home and how to switch to propane from another energy source.
