Putting propane to work for you

Companies in a wide range of business sectors are finding propane to be a highly economical, efficient, and environmentally friendly option to meet all of their fueling needs. Using propane as a fuel source not only reduces operating and maintenance costs but also improves your company's marketability by showing your commitment to protecting the environment and public health while acting to reduce the country’s dependence on foreign oil and create more American jobs. 

Forklifts
According to the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), propane is used to fuel 670,000 forklifts in factories and warehouses across the US, accounting for 80% of the spark-ignition forklift market. Propane is a clean-burning fuel that is more economical, environmentally-friendly, efficient, reliable, and contains a high domestic availability (90% of propane is produced in the U.S., compared with 30% of petroleum, reducing the cost and energy use associated with transportation as well as our dependence on foreign oil).
Job Site Temporary Heat
When temperatures drop, you often need temporary heat to complete a job right. Workers need to stay warm to be productive, and heat is often required to allow materials to dry or cure properly. Propane is the fuel of choice in such situations, being used in an estimated 80% of construction projects with a need for temporary heat. Propane not only offers environmentally-friendly, efficient, and clean-burning options, but also offers portability and availability on various jobs sights with no need for electrical cords or gas lines.
Generators
For many years, propane has been used as a clean-burning, non-toxic, and easily portable and storable fuel source for generators. Propane-fueled generators have proven to be quiet, safe, and dependable, providing quick resumption of power in the event of primary power failure. Propane generators offer you innovative technology, cogeneration systems (Combined heat and power 'CHP'), distributed generation for off-grid locations, and many incentives from The Propane Education and Research Council, and more.
Landscaping (Mowers & Equipment)
Landscape companies across the country are switching to propane-powered mowers and equipment such as trimmers and leaf blowers as they enjoy both cost savings and a marketing edge. Propane-powered equipment costs a bit more up front, but switching to propane quickly results in net cost savings (propane, on average, costs 5% to 15% less than gasoline or diesel). Consumers usually have multiple choices in landscaping providers, and providing sustainable, environmentally friendly services is one way your company can set itself apart.

Fueling vehicle fleets and small-duty trucks 


Many businesses using fleets of vehicles or even just one or two light-duty trucks are turning to propane autogas as their fuel source. According to the Propane Education and Research Council, there are more than 270,000 on-road propane vehicles in the US. That’s because this clean alternative fuel has a proven track record of offering significant advantages over both traditional and other alternative fuels. These advantages come in the form of economy, performance and convenience, safety, and a positive impact on the environment and US economy.
