Propane is an adaptable, affordable fuel for your business needs.
Businesses and homeowners alike are discovering that propane is a versatile fuel that can power various systems and equipment. In the Eastern Panhandle region, Roach Energy supplies commercial propane to restaurants, hotels, warehouses, construction sites, farms, landscaping companies and many other clients.
Here’s a rundown of propane’s essential functions for businesses and worksites.
Commercial propane fuels restaurants and hospitality businesses.
The propane we deliver lights cooktops, powers commercial-grade clothes dryers, heats water for hotel showers and keeps spas and pools warm. No wonder restaurants, hotels and laundromats depend on Roach Energy for bulk propane, fuel tank storage and equipment services.
Propane is vital for agriculture and landscaping.
Today’s agricultural businesses and landscapers depend on propane for a range of uses. These include the following:
adaptable space heating for barns, poultry houses and outbuildings
Unlike natural gas, you don’t need a utility connection to use propane, which is a significant value for agricultural businesses that may not be near a gas utility.
Temp heat keeps outdoor worksites safe and warm.
When temperatures plunge in Berkeley, Morgan, Jefferson and Washington counties, construction sites need temporary heat to ensure their workforce is safe and comfortable. Propane provides fast, robust heat. It’s also vital in ensuring the integrity of your project. Propane heat can:
warm frozen ground for digging and pouring concrete.
help paint, joint compound, spackle and other materials set and dry correctly.
prevent water in stucco from freezing.
prevent ice formation in concrete and brick.
Propane forklifts combine power and safety.
Propane remains a popular fuel for forklifts. Propane forklifts have some significant advantages over other options:
Propane forklifts are safe to operate indoors because they emit very few nitrogen oxides or sulfur oxides.
Unlike electric forklifts, propane forklifts can operate outdoors in the rain.
Propane forklifts have more power than electric models and can drive up inclines while carrying loads.
Electric forklifts slow down as their power runs out, but propane forklifts operate at full power until their last drop of fuel.
Refueling a propane forklift is easy. Just attach a new cylinder and get moving!
Propane generators reliably keep the lights on.
Our electric grid is overburdened, and blackouts are unfortunately on the rise. What do schools, daycares, nursing homes and hospitals do when the grid goes down? They turn to propane generators. Propane generators are the most dependable backup electricity option around. Propane has a virtually unlimited shelf life, unlike gasoline. You don’t need to rush to a gas station (which might not be open during a blackout) to fuel your generator. It’s connected to your propane tank.
