Many people don’t realize that propane is actually considered a green fuel. That’s because it is has almost zero harmful emissions. Read on to learn more about what propane can do for your business or household in Minnesota or Wisconsin, and then give Lakes Gas a call for all your propane needs.
What makes propane green?
- Efficiency: Part of what makes propane more eco-friendly is that less energy is required to produce the heat you are seeking. Propane burns warmer and heats faster and more thoroughly. That means you get more bang for your buck, and so does the environment.
- Almost no emissions: Propane is quite clean-burning when compared with traditional fossil fuels, due to its very low carbon content, and that makes it better for the environment. Because it’s not releasing harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, you can be confident you’re reducing your home or business’s carbon footprint.
- Non-toxic: Propane isn’t harmful to soil, water, animals or plants, and it doesn’t spill like some other fuels, since it’s a gas and not a liquid. That’s one reason why it has the stamp of approval from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).
- Renewable potential: Newer technologies are helping researchers find ways to make propane even greener by processing animal fats, plant byproducts, and resources that are renewable. Renewable propane is the way of the future, but you don’t have to wait to see the benefits of this green fuel.
