Propane 101

What is propane?

Propane is an environmentally friendly fuel, which is created as a by-product of oil and natural gas refining. Under pressure, propane gas becomes a liquid. The liquid is then delivered by truck and pumped into the tank at your home. When you turn on an appliance, the liquid in the tank boils off into a gas and is burned by the appliance.

Where does it come from?

In 2011, the United States became a new exporter of propane and 99% of the propane used in New England comes from North America. Of late, vast propane and natural gas reserves have been discovered in the Marcellus Shale in New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. It is expected that these reserves could provide enough energy to supply the Northeast for the next 100 years.

The environment

Next to natural gas, propane has the second-lowest greenhouse gas emissions; lower than fuel oil and far lower than electricity from a fossil fueled power plant. Since much of the electricity production in New England relies on fossil fuels, it is far better for the environment to use a high efficiency gas appliance than an electric one. And over a 20 year service life, a propane furnace emits 2,415 fewer pounds of CO2 than a typical oil furnace.
