Environmental Benefits of Propane

When you choose an efficient, cost-effective, safe, and reliable energy source like propane for your home or business, you are actively doing your part to protect and conserve the environment.

Eastern believes it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect and conserve the Earth’s resources so that future generations can live safe, clean, and healthy lives. That’s why we specialize in propane-based energy solutions and why over 40% of our fleet is powered by propane. Propane is one of the world’s leading alternative fuels. You can find out more by checking out the Clean Air Act Amendments and the National Policy Act.

Here’s why propane makes so much sense: whether you use it to heat water for your family, power a farm, or run a fleet of mowers, propane produces significantly fewer emissions than diesel, gasoline, or even electricity. It’s true. By choosing propane, one of the cleanest energy sources available today, you’re making a change for the better. Propane is:

  • CLEAN ENERGY TODAY, TOMORROW, AND INTO THE FUTURE
  • LOW EMISSIONS AND BETTER FOR YOUR BOTTOM LINE
  • A BIG PART OF THE BIG PICTURE

As a recognized “green” fuel, propane exhaust produces:

  • 60 to 70% fewer hydrocarbons
  • 12% less carbon dioxide
  • 20% less nitrous oxide
  • As much as 60% less carbon monoxide as compared to gasoline
