Clean energy. Propane gives off less than half of the greenhouse gas emissions that electricity does, considering that most of the nation’s electric power is fueled by coal-fired power plants. In fact, by using propane, you can earn points under green building programs, such as the National Green Building Standard™ and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Homes.
Reduces energy costs. Propane appliances are typically far more efficient than their electric counterparts. For example, an Energy Star–qualified propane tankless water heater can save your customers up to 50 percent on their energy bills, when compared with the costs of operating a standard electric tank-style heater.
