Did you know that propane has been a big part of energy in the U.S. more than 100 years? Propane is simply a byproduct of oil refining and natural gas processing. Propane is a clean burning alternative to diesel or gasoline fuel that reduces air pollutants like carbon monoxide. Nontoxic, odorless and colorless, propane is most typically used for space heating or water heating, and as engine fuel for applications such as forklifts or generators.
According to the Propane Education and Research Council in Washington, D.C., propane is used in more than 48 million households in the U.S.! Because it’s such an efficient and dependable source of energy, propane is also used by more than 800,000 farms across the nation to power irrigation engines and other equipment.
