‘Why use Propane’? Let’s look at some of the reasons:

Propane is a US produced product. The United States is a net exporter of propane and this helps our country be more energy self-sufficient.
  • 91% of the original energy source for propane reaches the end user compared to only 31.5 for electricity.
  • Propane is not a greenhouse gas, is not toxic, non-caustic or corrosive and is truly environmentally friendly.
  • Propane is portable. From grilling, to camping to serving remote locations with heat, light and production of power, propane is the right choice.

Clean & Energy Efficient!
Propane is not a greenhouse gas, is non toxic, non caustic and tuly environmentally friendly. Electricity is often touted as a clean fuel and can be, however, when measuring efficiency and carbon emissions from the source of the energy all the way to the end user, propane is the 'clean air' choice. Consider the following information when you are making your energy choice:
  • 91% of the original energy source for propane reaches the end user (home, business or farm).

  • Only 31.5% of the original energy used to produce electricity reaches the end user.
  • 68.5% of all energy used to produce electricity is lost to conversion, plant use, transmission and distribution.
  • 68.8% of all electricity used in our country is produced from coal, natural gas amd other petroleum products.
  • only 10.5% of our nations electricty is produced from renewal resources. Of this renewable energy, 75% is produced by hydro-electric power plants.
