Propane gas is a good choice for customers who prioritize environmental responsibility, since it is clean and produces minimal emissions, according to the Propane Education & Research Council. Propane also doesn’t harm soil or groundwater – an important factor when it comes to determining whether a fuel is “green.”
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave propane its stamp of approval as a clean-burning alternative fuel because propane is low in carbon, and does not emit greenhouse gasses that contribute to a home or business’s carbon footprint.
Fuel efficiency is a major principle for eco-friendly energy sources. Higher efficiency reduces the level of harmful emissions. Propane is one of the most efficient fuels available, with many propane appliances achieving 95% efficiency – and sometimes even more! Propane is capable of producing large power outputs without using much energy, comparatively. In other words, propane can offer more bang for your buck, all while protecting the environment. It’s a win-win for customers who care about being environmentally-conscious, but also need to keep costs budget-friendly.
