Propane has a lot to offer the homes and businesses of western North Carolina. That’s because propane is extremely versatile, safe, and efficient. Using propane also has benefits for the environment, so you can feel even better about using it for your home or business.
Compared to a home using electricity, a home using propane will produce only half the greenhouse gas emissions. That’s a big deal when you consider that a significant percentage (over 40%) of the electricity used in the US is created by coal-fired power plants. In fact, electricity is the second-leading producer of greenhouse gas emissions in America. Transportation is the only industry sector that ranks higher. In addition, coal-fired plants play a role in the presence of smog and acid rain. Propane does not.

Consider the massive damage done to the environment whenever there’s an oil spill. However, a propane spill doesn’t damage the environment. Propane is non-toxic. Instead of polluting the air, water, and soil or adversely affecting the surrounding plant, marine, or aquatic life, propane evaporates.
Energy efficiency benefits the environment. Propane appliances are very energy efficient—significantly more so than their electric counterparts. Additionally, when you calculate the energy used for the extraction, processing, and transportation to its usage point, propane is 87% efficient, and electricity is just 32% efficient.
