Diesel Generators

We all understand that the Electric Grid is overwhelmed and we need clean electric power to supply to these Data Centers.  Let's consider an alternative to Diesel which would be Propane Powered Generators which will sustantially reduce greenhouse gases such as CO, CO2, and Nitrogen Oxide as well as non-regulated emissions including aromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, and sulfer oxide to a point of beyond 60% over diesel!  Furthermore, Conventional Propane used as an engine fuel has a carbon intensity reduction of over 50% greater than electricity when compared to the Average Electric Grid.  

No to Diesel Generators.
