Benefits of Propane
A clean and efficient fuel source
With about 90 percent of the propane used in the Unites States being domestically produced, it reduces our dependency on foreign oil. By not having to import the product, it is not only readily available, but the cost of transportation decreases which enables customers to pay less for this fuel source.
Certified Green Fuel
Propane is a non-toxic, nonpoisonous fuel that will not create an environmental hazard if released as a liquid or vapor into soil or water. Because of this, propane tanks can be installed under-ground without any worry of contaminating soil. Out-of-sight, out-of-mind!
Propane is clean fuel as listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act and Energy Policy of 1992. Propane-fueled vehicles have been tested and shown to produce 30 to 90 percent less carbon monoxide and close to 50 percent fewer toxins and other smog-producing emissions than gasoline engines.

Abundant in Supply
With a plentiful supply right here in the US, there is enough propane to meet America’s needs well into the 21st century. An extensive infrastructure of pipelines and storage facilities guarantees a steady and reliable supply. Railroad tank cars and delivery trucks assures that propane can be delivered wherever needed.
Propane has been proven to burn cleaner than gasoline, diesel and other fossil fuels because it emits no sulfur dioxide or particulates. Using propane reduces the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and air pollutants like carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide.
Propane is a reliable fuel for many applications including:
- Space Heating
- Temporary Heating
- Hot Water
- Cooking Appliances
- Clothes Drying
- Back-up Generators
- Fire Places
- Pool Heating
- Outdoor Grills
