Propane Gas - Clean, Safe, Versatile

Beatrice Alvarez

If you are looking for an alternative source of energy, you will want to consider using propane gas. Propane is a cleaner type of energy plus it is safer than gas for indoor use. Propane is also very versatile and can be used to power vehicles and can be used inside the home. 

Cleaner Energy

One of the biggest advantages using propane gas as an alternative form of energy is that it is a cleaner type of fuel than other oil-based products. Propane is an approved form of alternative energy according to the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992.

One of the reasons it is cleaner is because it contains a lower content of carbon. These days with so many people being concerned about the environment, many companies and environmentally conscious people are trying to find ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Using propane not only reduces the amount of carbon being released into the ozone, its life-cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions has a decreased impact on global warming.

Safer Energy

Propane is a safer form of energy when operating machinery and equipment indoors. For instance, when using forklifts and skid-steer loaders inside a warehouse, there is less chance of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous, odorless gas and when it builds up indoors, it can be fatal. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 400 people in the United States die each year due to unintentional poisoning from carbon monoxide. This can happen when gas-powered equipment is operated indoors. When machinery and other equipment utilizes propane gas instead, it produces an ideal burn during combustion and greatly decreases the chances of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Versatile Energy

Propane gas can generally be used on anything that runs on regular gasoline. Not only can it be used in vehicles and certain types of machinery and equipment like forklifts, it can also be used instead of electricity in the home. Here are some examples inside the home where propane can be used:

  • Water heating
  • Cooking on ovens and stovetops
  • Space heaters
  • Barbecue grills
  • Emergency backup generators

Some advantages of using propane for the home are that it is much cheaper than electricity. Since propane can be stored safely inside a tank right on your property, it is also more dependable than electricity and can be used in times of power outages.

If you are looking for a clean, safe and versatile form of energy, you will want to consider using propane gas, available form companies like Mills Fuel Service Inc.

Exploring Wind Farms And Other Sustainable Energy Options

Hello, my name is Jean Rabantha. I love to talk about the different ways societies can create sustainable energy using wind farms. With enough turbines, the power of the wind can provide all of the electricity required for a large city. As turbines grow in height, even more wind power is available. As a result, researchers constantly set their sights toward creating better turbines, including floating models, which could send energy back to the generators sitting on the ground. I hope that our world can solely rely on sustainable energy, especially wind farms, within the next twenty years. Moving away from coal power would definitely benefit everyone involved. I hope to explore the different technologies, materials and designs used in wind farm creation. I will also share information I gather about other sustainable energy devices. Thank you.
