Propane, our favourite primary energy source; so versatile in its usage, clean and readily available. If you arenâ€™t an active user of propane, the following blog outlines reasons why you should be.

Safe â€“ With its non-toxic nature and strict regulations, propane is always a safe option.

These containers also provide the benefit of portability as they can be installed and refilled nearly anywhere. By law, propane must be handled by trained, licensed professionals.
Abundant â€“ Canada is the 6th largest propane producer, accounting for 3.5% of the worlds supply. Due to lack of domestic demand 70% (6.8 billion liters) of our nations propane is exported. This surplus creates a readily available product with stable prices, not subjected to the volatile nature of gasoline. Throughout the past 12 years, propane has been consistently over 40% less expensive.
