Why Is Propane the Exceptional Choice for Your Home?
It’s a question many folks have asked and, obviously, a question that has been answered quite well. Millions worldwide rely on propane usage to make their lives more comfortable. Of course, that’s not surprising. After all, the advantages of propane are tough to beat.
Clean, Safe Energy for the Future
If you are familiar only with the 20-pound propane tank that fuels your barbecue grills, you might be surprised to learn that nearly 60 million Americans rely on propane every day. Propane heats homes, water, and outdoor spaces. It cooks hot meals and provides a clean and comforting fireplace. On farms, propane controls pests and weeds, dries crops, and powers irrigation systems. In American factories, warehouses, and communities, propane powers the forklifts, construction equipment, and fleets that drive our economy.
Propane currently supplies about 4 percent of U.S. energy needs. But it has the potential to supply more. Fortunately, nearly 90 percent of U.S. propane supplies are produced at existing domestic facilities. Another 7 percent comes from Canada, making propane a very secure energy resource. With the world’s largest propane storage capacity, the U.S. is well-positioned to compete for growing supplies of propane being produced with the expanding global trade of liquefied natural gas.
Benefits of Propane
Propane is a non-toxic, colorless, and odorless gas produced from natural gas processing and crude oil refining. Stored in sturdy tanks, propane is a compact liquid that is highly portable and can be used wherever clean-burning fuel is needed.
Propane is a stable fuel that can be stored for long periods of time for emergency power generation. It emits fewer lifecycle greenhouse gases than gasoline or diesel fuel in engines, which has made propane one of the world’s most widely used alternative fuels.
Propane provides safe, clean, reliable, efficient and secure energy. That’s good value for consumers, the environment, and America.
