Most people think electricity is the key to an energy future that is less dependent on carbon. But when you take a closer look, another fuel looks like an even better option for shrinking our carbon footprint: propane gas.
Consider These Propane Benefits:
Eco-friendliness – Did you know that choosing propane rather than electricity for space heating, cooking, clothes drying, and water heating could cut carbon emissions in half? Replace your electric clothes dryer with a propane fueled model, for example, and you could reduce CO emissions by as much as three tons over the course of its useful life, according to the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
Portability – Because propane is easy to transport, more than 12 million households in rural America depend on it for heat, power, and appliances. Remote commercial enterprises rely on propane, too: for example, four out of five of U.S. farmers use propane grain dryers to reduce crop loss, improve yield, and preserve margins.
Availability in a crisis – Propane is an incredibly reliable energy source after hurricanes, wildfires, or other disasters paralyze a community. It’s also the perfect fuel for generators, which can keep your appliances, safety systems, and other equipment working when the grid is down.
When it comes to providing high-efficiency energy without fewer carbon drawbacks, propane is a great choice. Contact us today to learn more about propane deliveries for your WV or western MD home or business.
