Top Eco-Friendly Benefits of Using Propane Gas in North Texas
Propane produces fewer emissions
Whether you’re using propane to heat your family home or power your business, propane meets all clean air energy standards put forth for burned fuels by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Propane produces significantly fewer emissions than diesel, gasoline, or even electricity, and using propane produces 52% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than using an equivalent amount of electricity generated from the grid1.
For example, a propane-powered forklift produces 76% less sulfur dioxide than an electric forklift and 94% less nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons than its diesel counterpart2. Another way that propane drastically lowers carbon emissions is through its production. Because propane gas is a byproduct of natural gas processing and crude oil refining, it doesn’t require as many resources to produce since it’s being made anyway3.
Propane is created right here in TX
America produces enough propane to meet demand and is the leading producer of propane4. But how does propane’s domestic production affect our environment? Well, domestically produced fuels require less energy and carbon output for shipping and storage, meaning that US-produced propane gas is more environmentally conscious than the variety of imports that it replaces. Not only that, but most propane made in the US is created here in Texas, which means you’re supporting your local economy twofold when you choose propane for your residential, commercial, or agricultural needs.
Propane gas can be used to power all your appliances
Propane’s versatility means that rather than having to use other fuels to power some of your household appliances, propane can handle them all, including:
- Water heaters
- Pool heaters
- Indoor fireplaces
- Outdoor ranges
- Kitchen stoves
Propane also has a wide variety of commercial applications, such as:
- School buses
- Light-duty vehicles
- Medium-duty vehicles
- Commercial mowers
- Irrigation engines
- Commercial water heaters
- Commercial space heaters
- Commercial generators
Additionally, the inherent versatility of propane gas means that only one truck is needed to deliver fuel for all your household energy needs. Fewer trucks for your fuel means reduced emissions from the trucks themselves, which is better for the environment overall.
