One of the other amazing benefits of propane that some people don’t know about is that it’s a low-carbon fuel that isn’t toxic to our water or soil. Our propane customers gain peace of mind knowing that using clean and efficient fuel is the best choice for their homes and the environment. Once you know, the choice is obvious.
Propane is cleaner than electricity
Propane is so clean and safe that it is approved as an alternative fuel under the U.S. EPA’s Clean Air Act. Switching more homes to propane as a primary home energy source is key to moving America toward a low-carbon future. When you choose propane over electric for space heating, cooking, clothes drying, and water heating, you directly contribute to reducing overall carbon emissions.
- The personal use of propane for space heating, water heating, cooking and clothes drying can reduce greenhouse gas emissions up to 50%.
- The average propane-powered home reduces carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 30% compared to all-electric homes.
Propane is more efficient than electricity
Propane is also more efficient than electricity when we look at the whole lifecycle from production to transportation.
- A clean-burning, high-efficiency propane furnace wastes less than 10% of fuel in the combustion process.
- A propane clothes dryer gets laundry dry 25% faster than the typical electric model.
- Cooking with propane also results in roughly 30% lower carbon emissions compared to electricity based on typical usage levels and emissions.
Even your propane grill is great for saving home energy and ideal for simple, low-impact cooking. Hello summertime (or anytime) in Oregon!
