Natural gas is cleaner and more efficient than non-gas energy sources, resulting in smaller carbon footprints, reduced energy waste and the conservation of valuable energy resources. Since natural gas is domestically produced, it also reduces America’s dependence on foreign oil while creating jobs. For the end-user, advantages include greater reliability and hurricane-ready comfort, as well as substantial cost and energy savings.
- Made In America:
More than 95% of the propane used in the United States is produced in North America, helping us to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
According to the Propane Education and Research Council, burning propane releases about half the amount of carbon dioxide than generating non-gas. Propane is also an approved clean alternative fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act.
Propane enables homes and businesses to continue to cook and use hot water*—even when the power goes out. Plus, propane generators turn on automatically within seconds of a power outage and eliminate the need to buy and store fuel.
*In the event of a power outage, a propane tank-style water heater continues to operate automatically while a tankless water heater requires a simple battery.
Propane can be used virtually anywhere and everywhere, regardless of a property’s size, style or location.
Propane appliances provide superior comfort and convenience, including endless hot water, gourmet- quality cooking precision, faster clothes drying and other key benefits.
