Propane Is Green Energy

Measured by carbon footprint, propane is one of the greenest energy sources available.

Studies from organizations including the Environmental Protection Agency reveal that propane is an attractive option for avoiding greenhouse gas emissions in nearly any application.

Propane gives off less than half as many greenhouse gas emissions as using an equivalent amount of electricity generated from the U.S. grid. It is a low-carbon alternative fuel that produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than diesel and gasoline in a wide range of applications. In contrast to nontoxic propane, as little as one gallon of spilled gasoline can quickly contaminate groundwater above drinking water health advisory levels.
