Traveling through parts of Yellowstone, Treasure, Rosebud, Big Horn, Stillwater, Carbon, Sweet Grass and Musselshell counties, you’ll notice a lot of propane tanks in folks’ yards. Propane is a fantastically versatile fuel. It warms homes on icy nights, heats up baths and showers, lights up gas ranges and dries clothes. Families love gathering around stunning propane-powered hearths, grilling at gas grills and roasting marshmallows over propane firepits.

And when the power grid fails us (an all-too-common occurrence), propane-powered standby generators keep lights, refrigerators and life-preserving medical equipment running.

Is propane efficient?

Propane equipment is amazingly efficient. For example:

Is propane affordable?

As an overwhelmingly American-made fuel, propane is one of the most affordable home energy sources around. It’s so plentiful that our country recently reached an export level of 1.845 million barrels per day. This abundance, among other factors, makes propane more affordable than diesel, heating oil or gasoline. While natural gas tends to be priced lower, it also burns faster and generates less than half as much heat energy per cubic foot as propane.

Is propane a reliable energy source?

As we’ve established, the United States has ample propane supplies. And with a reliable propane delivery partner, like Valley Propane, you can rest assured that your gas-fired equipment will always be adequately fueled.

With a propane tank on your property, you enjoy true energy independence. You aren’t at the mercy of a utility and its poorly maintained infrastructure. And while other homes might go dark during a grid blackout, you can keep your home powered with a propane generator.

Is propane environmentally friendly?

Propane-powered homes are incredibly eco-friendly. Consider these facts:

It’s little wonder that propane is classified as an alternative fuel in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy Policy. It’s a truly clean energy source.

How safe is propane?

Overall, propane has a stellar safety record, largely thanks to strict regulations and high industry standards. Still, it’s important to know how to properly respond, if you suspect a propane leak:
