Propane: The Earth Day Fuel

Earth day

April 22 marks the 49th trip around the sun for Earth Day – a global event founded in 1970 by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in.

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

Propane: The clean, green fuel for your Maryland home

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly way to power your appliances without sacrificing any of the small luxuries that make a house a home, look no further than clean, green propane gas.

Versatile, powerful propane will help shrink your carbon footprint 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).
  • Reducing harmful impact – Propane is not toxic and does not spill, pool, or leave a residue, 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 eco-friendly way to power your home this Earth Day and beyond, propane is a great way to go – and if you need a reliable propane supplier anywhere in our Maryland service area, Q-Dog is the only way to go.
