Grain Drying

There are a couple of fuel sources that are used to power grain dryers, but propane is the most common, with 80% of farmers who dry grain using propane as their fuel. Propane for grain drying is more convenient, versatile, efficient, and safe.

Generators

Generators are essential for commercial use as backup and standby power sources in case of electrical power failure, and to provide energy in remote and off-grid locations. For many years, propane has been used as a clean-burning, non-toxic, easily portable and storable fuel source for generators. Propane-fueled generators have proven to be quiet, safe, and dependable, providing quick resumption of power in the event of primary power failure. 

Farm equipment and vehicles

Propane burns cleaner than gasoline or diesel which means fewer emissions and it is non-toxic. In addition, it is cheaper and easier on engines, which means not only lower fuel costs but also savings on maintenance costs and longer engine life.
