During the last 5 years as President of his own alternative fuels consulting company, Adrianus Resources, Inc., he has written over 400 grants and garnered over $65 million on behalf of various customers throughout the United States. He truly believes in the use of alternative fuels as he owns two alternative fuel vehicles, including a dedicated natural gas Camry and a Honda Accord Hybrid.

Ron has three different degrees including his MBA and a Finance Degree majoring in Taxation. For this reason we have asked Ron to talk about the tax benefits that apply to consumers for alternative fuel vehicles.
