As part of its commitment to fostering innovative solutions to support a sustainable energy future, Suburban Propane launched a new subsidiary, Suburban Renewable Energy, LLC, (Suburban Renewables) as part of its long-term strategic goal of building out a renewable energy platform.

Additionally, on March 10, Suburban Propane purchased a 25% equity stake in Independence Hydrogen, Inc., a veteran-owned and operated supplier of gaseous hydrogen solutions.

Independence Hydrogen, Inc. (IH), privately-held company developing a gaseous hydrogen ecosystem to deliver locally-sourced hydrogen to local markets, with a primary focus on material handling, and backup power applications.
