Commercial Propane Solutions for Your Tennessee Business
Restaurants, hotels, resorts, dry cleaners, greenhouses, farms, offices and warehouses are among the many businesses in Tennessee that rely on propane to keep their operations prospering. Why is propane in such big demand? Consider the following:
- Propane remains one of the most economical sources of energy for large warehouses and factories. Because of its low, nontoxic emissions, propane is also the fuel of choice for powering indoor forklifts, torches and welders.
- In the residential-construction industry, smart builders have been incorporating propane into their design plans for high-efficiency homes. Building with propane is much better for the environment than electricity, and utilizing propane in a home design can earn points toward LEED certification.
- Propane is a go-to fuel for generating temporary heating at a construction site.
- Propane is the best choice for backup generators for businesses (and homes), since it can be stored indefinitely and will not deteriorate over time, like gasoline, or thicken in cold weather, like diesel.
- Propane Autogas has made a big impression for forward-thinking Tennessee businesses, which find that operating their vehicles with eco-friendly autogas strongly appeals to their client base.
Other commercial advantages of propane
- Propane won’t degrade over time, and doesn’t contaminate soil or water the way gasoline or diesel does. The risk of fuel theft is minimal. It also gives you portable power when and where you need it.
- Today’s continuous-flow propane-powered grain dryers were designed to meet the needs of modern fast-paced, high-yield operations. Not only are they more efficient, their clean-burning technology produces fewer engine deposits. That’s less maintenance and less downtime for your business.
- Propane can keep your business going even when power lines are down, protecting your production processing. Plus, propane burns cleanly and is considered a green choice for the environment.
- Propane is nontoxic and safe! The propane industry is highly regulated by codes and standards set by the National Fire Protection Association, the Department of Energy, the Department of Transportation, and various state and local regulatory bodies. Those working in the propane sector hone their skills through the Certified Employee Training Program.
- Incentives available through the Propane Education and Research Council can save businesses money when they expand their use of propane or make upgrades.

- Space heating for greenhouses
