The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club
Originally intending to capitalize on the environmental benefits of “going green,” Renaissance Vinoy Golf and Country Club has also been pleased with the equipment performance, as well as the ease of maintenance for the propane powered landscaping equipment.
The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club started the conversion to propane-powered equipment as a participant in a yearlong Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) program, hosted in partnership with Audubon International and R&R Products Inc. Suburban Propane was the local propane supplier.
According to PERC, the Vinoy achieved 45 percent fuel savings over diesel with the fairway mower and trim mower it used during the program. In addition, the Vinoy experienced 25 percent fuel savings over gasoline with the greens mower and bunker rake.
