Green Your Fleet
As a clean fuel alternative, propane has significant environmental benefits that make it a positive and ever-growing option for fleet owners and drivers alike.
Propane emits significantly fewer emissions than other standard fuels like diesel or gasoline, and, on average, also creates 43% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than other alternative fuels like electricity, annually. Propane releases fewer emissions because it has a lower carbon content than many other fuels and was added to the Clean Air Act as a clean fuel in 1990 and the Energy Policy Act of 1992. By reducing the output of deadly gases like carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, propane-powered vehicles are directly combatting contributors to climate change and environmental degradation.
Propane also requires zero idling time to warm up. Idling is known to be a harmful practice that is common among drivers, as it releases chemicals and particulates that pollute the air, speed up rates of climate change, and contributes to health problems. Idling has been proven to increase rates of asthma, cancer, and other serious health conditions related to pollution.
A Cleaner Alternative
Compared to standard fuels like gasoline or diesel, propane is nontoxic and noncarcinogenic. Studies have shown that propane poses no harm to soil, surface water, or groundwater and that it does not spill, pool, or leave a residue. As a benign substance, propane poses no risk for long-term damage to your home or property.
The environmental impact might not be first on your priority list when considering the switch to propane, but it is a central aspect of the conversion process that, for many people, can become that final consideration that pushes them to make the switch.
