As a clean versatile energy source, propane is used for a wide variety of applications. Farm Bureau members use propane for space heating, water heating, cooking.
Propane is also used to power over-the-road vehicles, forklifts and stationary engines. Agricultural members use applications that include crop drying, fruit drying, and chicken brooding. Propane shows promise as an environmentally friendly fuel source for commercial lawnmowers, energy efficient combined heat and power generation, and liquid injection systems designed to enhance mileage on diesel-powered vehicles.
Propane applications can be found anywhere you look and are utilized year-round. This safe fuel serves about 60 million people in the United States in millions of homes, industry, farming and more.
- At home, you can find propane powered appliances from your range top and oven, dryer, fireplace or furnace, to your backyard pool and spa heater, patio heater or fire pit. Most of us use it for our barbeque grills and have a propane powered back-up generator if need be.
- Landscapers are turning to propane powered mowers and commercial fleets (law enforcement, taxis, school buses) across the country are converting to propane autogas.
- The agricultural applications of propane are numerous. According to The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) propane is used on 865,000 U.S. farms for irrigation pumps, grain dryers, fruit dryers, standby generators, and other types of farm equipment.
Propane is a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly energy source when properly stored, transported, handled and used.
