Part Of The Cure: Propane Is A Clean & Affordable Fuel
Most Americans agree that we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Electrification seems to be the leading solution in the media today. Electrification refers to the process of replacing technologies that use fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) with technologies that use electricity as a source of energy. The intention is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and thereby decarbonize the economy and mitigate climate change.
The reality is most of America’s electricity still comes from power plants running on either natural gas, coal or nuclear energy reactors. The cost of installation, the lack of electric infrastructure and the challenges of power storage are all part of the Electrification challenge!
Read on to learn how propane can supplement electric energy to reduce emissions–bridging the gap to a cleaner energy future.
Propane Is A Clean & Affordable Fuel For Your Home
Cleaning up our nation’s electrical grid will take time and a lot of money, so supplementing with clean and affordable propane that’s available now will help us get there faster. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defined propane as an alternative fuel in their Clean Air Act of 1990 because it is non-toxic and insoluble in water while releasing almost zero emissions. According to the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC), propane produces 43% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than grid-generated electricity. Not all fossil fuels are created equal, and propane can be part of the cure.
Propane is Plentiful! The United States produces twice as much propane as we use. Instead of exporting propane to China, we can use it at home with greater price stability.
Propane Offers Versatile Emissions Solutions Outside The Home
Endless propane-powered solutions are available today that will immediately improve air quality without significant infrastructure investment. The EPA’s Clean School Bus Program offers school districts up to $30,000 per bus to replace diesel buses with propane. Many industries have begun switching diesel-powered agricultural equipment, mowers, forklifts and light-duty vehicles to propane to reduce emissions and save money, especially when accounting for the available federal grants and incentive programs.
