PROPANE IS AVAILABLE
PROPANE IS CLEAN ENERGY
Propane offers the air-quality advantage of burning cleaner than coal, light and heavy petroleum fuels, ethanol, and even natural gas, in some cases.
The propane transportation and storage system prevents any evaporative emissions. In the event of a leak, propane readily vaporizes and dissipates into the atmosphere. In an era of environmental concerns, propane stands above most fuels and rivals the cleanest.
PROPANE IS SAFE
PROPANE IS ECONOMICAL
The U.S. Department of Energy reports that heating a home with propane costs on average, half as much as heating with electricity. The Department of Energy estimates propane water heaters are as much as 30% less expensive to operate than electric – with twice the recovery rate – resulting in substantial savings on electricity bills. As a transportation fuel, propane has historically enjoyed a significant price advantage: as much as 25% over regular gasoline.
PROPANE IS EFFICIENT
Propane can be a significant boost to productivity when used as forklift fuel. It offers faster operation and quick, easy cylinder exchanges reducing down-time.
PROPANE IS GREEN
According to the Propane Education and Research Council:
> Propane-powered vehicles emit 25 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than vehicles running on gasoline and 80 percent fewer smog-producing hydrocarbon emissions than vehicles running on diesel.
> Propane-powered irrigation systems produce 11 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than diesel systems and 24 percent fewer than gasoline systems.
> Propane-powered forklifts produce 19 percent fewer emissions than gasoline forklifts, and 7 percent fewer emissions than diesel forklifts.
> Propane-powered equipment can also lower emissions of oxides of nitrogen compared with other fuels. In many places, propane equipment can be used on ozone action days so you won’t experience downtime, and low-carbon propane often gives contractors an edge when bidding on jobs.
