Propane: A Clean Fuel for Earth Day—and Every Day

Earth day

Posted: April 10, 2019

Did you know that April 22, 2019 marks the 49th annual Earth Day? It’s a global event that celebrates our planet while recognizing the challenges we face to preserve it.

One small way to get into the Earth Day spirit is to start thinking seriously about switching your electric appliances to clean, green propane – a power-packed energy source that’s long been recognized as a clean-burning fuel.

Propane: high efficiency, low impact on the environment

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. As one example, a tankless propane water heater 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 nontoxic 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 does occur.

Here’s 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, choose Wilson Oil and Propane. We care about the environment!
