Safe, Clean & Green

Compared with electricity, renewable propane—like fossil propane—leaves a very small carbon footprint. Pair that fact with the volume of renewable propane that can potentially be produced in an economical way, and it becomes clear that this is a clean and green fuel, without a doubt.

The Significance of Energy Star
When you see a blue Energy Star label on propane equipment or a propane appliance, you know that the item you’re looking at produces less pollution and uses less energy than other, comparable products on the market.

In fact, the amount of pollution saved in one year as a result of consumers using Energy Star products was equal to 23 million cars’ worth of pollution. At the same time, they saved $12 billion.

Renewable Propane: A Clean-Burning Fuel
Far fewer greenhouse gas emissions result from propane generators than from generators powered by diesel or gasoline.

The energy solutions we implement in the effort to address climate change cannot be addressed by any single source of fuel. Instead, we need to look at climate change as a broad challenge with several long-term, multifaceted solutions. Renewable propane is most definitely one of these solutions.

Always derived—at least partially—from a renewable source, renewable propane is an ideal option for times when functioning off the grid is either preferable or inevitable.

Clean Energy Reminders
You may be familiar with these points about propane, but keep in mind that they all hold true for renewable propane as well—and will prove to garner even more impressive results.

  • A propane tankless water heater can prevent 3,000 pounds of CO2 from going into the environment annually.
  • Propane-powered homes reduce CO2 use by 30% when compared with all-electric homes. This includes direct use of propane for space heating, water heating, cooking and clothes drying.
  • Propane itself is not a greenhouse gas, and propane-powered homes reduce greenhouse gases by 50%.

Safe and Sound
It’s important to remember that propane and renewable propane alike are nontoxic. There’s no residue left behind, and both types of fuel are harmless to soil and water. And while a tank leak is quite unlikely for a well-maintained system, there are no risks to worry about in terms of home or property damage even if one does happen.
