Chances are if you love the great state of Texas, as much as we do, you want to do everything you can to protect the Lone Star State and help conserve the Earth’s resources so that future generations can live safe, clean and healthy lives.
Many homeowners trust propane to fuel their lifestyle, save them money, and keep their homes comfortable and convenient. But did you know propane is also considered one the greenest fuels too?
Both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992 declared propane to be an alternative energy source, so propane customers can feel good about reducing their carbon footprint.
Here are four reasons why using propane benefits the environment.
Propane is a low carbon, clean-burning energy source that emits virtually no air pollutants.
Propane can’t hurt water or soil because it’s not toxic.
Switching to propane reduces carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and greenhouse gas emissions.
Propane improves efficiency. Propane-powered appliances are typically much more efficient than electric models. Less energy used equals less environmental impact.
