Earth day

April 22 marks the 49th annual Earth Day – a global event conceived by Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970 as a “teach-in” to inspire us to lighten the load on our precious planet.

Want to know one of the best ways to get in the Earth Day spirit this year? Fill your tank with propane – a super versatile, super efficient energy source recognized as a “low-polluting fuel” by the 1990 Amendments to the Clean Air Act.

Propane: The Earth-friendly fuel

If you’re looking for a greener way to power your appliances without sacrificing comfort or performance, look no further than propane.

By using propane rather than coal-fired electricity or heating oil, you will be doing your part for our planet by:

  • Reducing emissions – Propane combustion produces less than half the greenhouse gas emissions of electricity to produce the same amount of energy. It also contains less carbon than other fossil fuels, including heating oil, gasoline, diesel, kerosene and ethanol.
  • Boosting efficiency – Propane-powered appliances are usually more efficient – sometimes far more efficient – than electric models of similar size and output; a tankless propane water heater, for example, can save up to 50 percent on energy costs compared to a similar unit powered by electricity, according to the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
  • Minimizing harmful impacts – Propane is not toxic and does not spill or pool, which makes it harmless to soil or water in the event of a tank leak. With propane, there are no risks for long-term damage to your home or property if a leak occurs.

The bottom line: If you’re looking for an easy way to tread a little more lightly on the planet, replace your electric-powered home comfort equipment with high efficiency propane appliances – and if you need a reliable propane supplier anywhere in our Pennsylvania service area, choose Koppy’s Propane.
