Off-Grid Living Basics
Whether for a home on the Great Plains or a beachfront property in Hawaii, propane is fast becoming the smart choice to create exceptional residential lifestyles in areas not serviced by gas mains or the electric grid. That’s because propane is a clean, safe, and reliable energy source that delivers cozy heat, chef-quality cooking, and convenient outdoor entertaining. If you are a homeowner who values flexibility and freedom, propane is an excellent energy choice.
Propane fits your lifestyle
With propane, you don't have to trade quality of location for quality of living. You can have all the amenities of a suburban home in a rural or exurban area. For example, propane furnaces last longer and heat more evenly than electric heat pumps. And propane tankless water heaters can supply hot water at a fraction of the cost of comparable electric units.
There's more to propane than home and water heating. Propane is a premium energy source for indoor cooking and clothes drying and a variety of outdoor living conveniences. When other power sources fail, a propane generator can keep essential needs — or your whole house — operating without interruption.
All-American energy, close to home
Nearly 90 percent of U.S. propane supplies are produced in the United States, making propane a truly domestic energy source. Propane is readily available in virtually any location. Qualified technicians are available to install underground or above-ground propane storage tanks and safely run all connections to household appliances. Whether you live in the mountains or by the sea, you can find a steady supply of clean, efficient propane close to home.
Safety is simple
When it comes to the safe handling of propane, our industry’s commitment to professional training makes all the difference. In fact, the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) has established a Certified Employee Training Program (CETP) that is now required in eight states and used by propane marketers nationwide. With proven teaching materials and extensive documentation, this highly respected certification program meets rigorous training requirements mandated by many key agencies, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Fire Protection Association.
