About Propane

Propane, also known as liquefied petroleum gas (LP-gas), is one of the nation's most versatile sources of energy. This safe fuel serves approximately 60 million people in the United States in millions of homes, industry, farming, fleets and more.

Green

Green
Propane is an approved, clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane has always been a “green” fuel: far ahead of today’s trends. Because propane is one of the lightest, simplest hydrocarbons in existence, it is also one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels. Using propane as a substitute for other fuels, like fuel oil and gasoline, is an economical and viable step toward cleaner air.

Versatile

Shield
Propane can effectively and efficiently fuel your entire home or business, outside and in. From heating your home, water or pool/spa to drying your clothes, lighting up your backyard or grilling - propane has you covered. Propane can also take it outside to fuel your farm or business, powering agricultural and landscaping equipment, or even fueling your fleet.

Affordable

Propane is abundant and priced competitively compared with electricity, heating oil, and other fuels. Not to mention, propane powered appliances are energy efficient which helps you save money on annual energy costs. Many states also offer fuel tax incentives for using clean fuels, like propane, further reducing energy costs.
