Propane – your Earth Day fuel
April 22 marks the 49th annual Earth Day – a global event conceived by former Senator Gaylord Nelson to celebrate our planet – and to challenge us to tread more lightly upon it.
Want to know one of the best ways to get in the Earth Day spirit? Switch your electric appliances to clean, green propane – a power-packed energy source recognized as a “low-polluting fuel” by the 1990 Amendments to the Clean Air Act.
Propane: high efficiency, low emissions performance
If you’re looking for a greener way to power your appliances without sacrificing comfort or performance, look no further than propane. This versatile fuel will help shrink your carbon footprint by:
- Cutting emissions – Propane combustion produces less than half the greenhouse gas emissions of electricity to produce the same amount of energy. It also contains less carbon than other fossil fuels, including heating oil, gasoline, diesel, kerosene and ethanol.
- Improving efficiency – Propane-powered appliances are usually more efficient –sometimes far more efficient – than electric models of similar size and output; a tankless propane water heater, for example, can save up to 50 percent on energy costs compared to a similar unit powered by electricity, according to the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
- Reducing harmful impact – Propane is not toxic and does not spill, pool, or leave a residue, which makes it harmless to soil or water in the event of a tank leak. With propane, there are no risks for long-term damage to your home or property if a leak occurs.
The bottom line: If you’re looking for an easy way to be a little kinder to the planet, choose propane – and if you need a reliable propane supplier anywhere in our Northern California service area, choose Allied Propane Service.
