Why Propane?

Millions of people worldwide use propane to make their lives more comfortable. Propane is an environmentally friendly choice. Propane burns cleaner, works harder and operates smarter. Choosing propane means you can help reduce greenhouse emissions save energy and protect the environment.

Propane is Clean

Propane is greener and helps cut greenhouse gas emissions because it has low carbon content. It's approved as an alternative fuel in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992 and 2005. When burned, propane emits less than half the greenhouse gas emissions as an equivalent amount of electricity produced by coal-fired power plants. Propane emits less greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline, diesel and electricity in many applications.

When used in transportation, propane creates 60 to 70% less hydrocarbons, 12% less carbon dioxide, 20% less nitrous oxide, as much as 60% less carbon monoxide, and up to 96% less carcinogenic benzene and toluene than gasoline.

A traditional propane water heater emits 60% fewer greenhouse gas emissions that its electric counterpart.

Propane is Reliable

Almost 90% of all propane is produced in the U.S. It's there when you want it and there when you need it.

Propane tanks can be installed nearly anywhere.

Propane is a Good Value

Propane is energy efficient. A propane furnace can heat air up to 25 degrees warmer. Propane appliances have a shorter energy savings payback period, the time it takes for an appliance to pay for itself via energy savings.

Nationwide Average Cost per Million BTU Comparison 2003 - 2009

Electricity $28.22
Propane $18.22
No. 2 Heating Oil $14.29
Natural Gas $11.62

Propane is Safe

Propane has quite a remarkable safety record, due in large part to the stringent codes and regulations developed by the propane industry and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Statistics compiled by the NFPA indicate that the safest way to heat is with gas.

Propane won't ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches 940 degrees. Propane gas is nontoxic and produces minimal emissions. Propane is not harmful to soil or water.
