America’s Future Energy Solution

It’s human nature and a healthy part of life: we work toward new goals every day. At the same time, we’re fighting against something every day: climate change.

Propane, in its more widely known, common form, offers a low-carbon profile. An on-site energy source, it has no expensive infrastructure network, and it is used to power the most efficient equipment available to agricultural and commercial businesses.

Candid Conversation
Every form of energy, both renewable and nonrenewable, can face criticism for how it is produced, how it is delivered and how efficiently it is consumed. The “leave it in the ground” approach to fossil fuels is not a workable solution for an advancing society with growing energy needs. 

“If you want renewable energy, get ready to dig.”
—Mark Mill, Wall Street Journal, August 5, 2019

Propane is a natural by-product of other energy production. It offers a low-carbon profile, is an on-site energy source with no expensive infrastructure network and is used in the most efficient equipment available. Renewable propane, newer on the scene, offers even more advantages. It’s reliable energy you can depend on.

Another Way to Look at Renewable Fuels
When you think of renewable energy, it’s possible that other forms come to mind before renewable propane. The reality, however, is that a huge portion of energy can—and often does—come from unexpected places, like refuse. And renewable propane has incredible potential to be widely available because of all of its natural sources.

Take a look at this tool from ISO New England.

Propane vs. Electricity:
water heaters

A propane water heater can produce two and a half times as much hot water as an electric water heater. Oh, and you’ll save 30% on your bill as well. When you switch your fuel from propane to electricity or wood, your particulate emissions volume skyrockets.
