Now that summer’s here, you’re able to spend more time outside enjoying your propane grill cooking up some delicious lunches and dinners (maybe even breakfast, too!). But, whenever you fire up your propane grill, did you know that you’re using a fuel source that is largely produced right here in the United States?

In fact, propane has quite a large footprint right here in Delmarva! Check out some facts about the U.S., the Delmarva region, and propane in general: *

And while we’re talking about money, propane can help you keep more of it in your pocket! Using propane appliances such as water heaters, fireplaces, furnaces and boilers lets you keep your home comfortable, but with lower energy costs compared to other fuel and energy sources like electricity, gasoline, or kerosene.

Keep the Red, White and Blue, Clean and Green

Using propane shows your love for our country and especially for the inhabitants of the Delmarva region by helping to protect our soil, water and air!

Did you know that propane was named a clean fuel under the 1990 Clean Air Act and the National Energy Policy of 1992? That’s because propane’s environmental impact is much smaller, as it generates far fewer emissions than other sources of fuel. Also, propane does not cause environmental damage in the event of a leak. It causes no harm to marine or plant life, water or soil!
