CLean energy Today, tomorrow, And Into the Future

Switching to propane is an immediate and effective way to make a positive impact on the environment, because propane is a low-carbon alternative fuel that produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than most other energy sources. In addition, propane is a non-poisonous, non-toxic fuel that won’t contaminate soil or groundwater, making it safe to use anywhere. Not only is propane the smart choice today, it’s the right choice for tomorrow, as well. Because in the near future, more and more of the propane we use will be made from renewable sources. An exciting innovation generated from waste oils and fats, renewable propane is chemically identical to propane produced from petroleum, yet it’s completely carbon neutral.

Low Emissions and Better For Your Bottom Line

Here’s why propane makes so much sense: whether you use it to heat water for your family, power a farm, or run a fleet of mowers, propane produces significantly fewer emissions than diesel, gasoline, or even electricity. It’s true. Propane produces 43 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than using an equivalent amount of electricity generated from the grid. Because propane is so efficient and because it’s employed directly at the point of use, it reduces emissions economically, too. Propane autogas, for example, reduces more emissions per dollar spent than any other fuel.

A Big Part of the Big PIcture

There’s no one solution — or single energy source — that will solve the long-term challenges we face. Wind and solar are both promising, low-emissions renewable energy sources, but when it comes to heating water or powering a bus, something more is required. And that’s where low-emissions propane comes in. It’s a crucial part of the larger solution that includes renewables and other clean sources of energy. And because it’s reliable as well as powerful, propane is helping lead a clean fuel revolution in industries from landscaping to home construction, sparking innovations that will keep our planet cleaner for future generations.
