Local green energy movements are a key battleground for propane

This industry celebrates its 110th anniversary this year. During this journey, we have seen a variety of ways in which this versatile fuel can be used.

A unique and attractive aspect of propane is that it is, relative to diesel and gasoline, a more environmentally friendly fuel.
