How can propane be used for businesses?

Propane’s versatility shines in its commercial uses. The major industries here in Southern Maryland can increase efficiency while lowering energy costs by using propane.

Forklifts that are run on propane are ideal for manufacturing and industrial facilities, warehouses and distribution centers, and construction companies. Because propane creates almost zero emissions, it can be used safely indoors, something that can’t be done with gasoline forklifts. Refueling propane forklifts is a matter of minutes because all that needs to be done is to replace the empty cylinder with a full one. Electric forklifts, on the other hand, are sidelined for eight hours or more while recharching.

Propane generators are invaluable during power outages because can be used to power medical equipment, keep critical technology like computers and servers running, and preserve perishable food by keeping the HVAC system operating.

The hospitality industry in Southern Maryland benefits from propane in its restaurants and commercial kitchens because it gives their cooks precise temperature control, high heat, and a consistency that helps them produce a high volume of food while maintaining high quality. Commercial laundries at hotels, resorts, golf courses, and more use propane dryers to get laundry dry 25% faster than comparable electric dryers while reducing both wear and wrinkles.

How does propane benefit farmers?

Propane meets the large energy demands of farms in a variety of ways while providing superior efficiency and security.

With propane, you get outstanding energy efficiency and reliability for heating and water heating for barns, outbuildings, greenhouses, poultry houses, and your home.
When you use propane for crop drying, you get efficiency that is 50% better than other fuels. Propane crop dryers also allows you to keep more of your yield that would be lost to rot if left to dry outdoors.

Are you looking for a way to keep weeds under control without harmful chemical herbicides? Propane flame weed control is much more environmentally friendly than herbicides as well as safer for you and your workers. It also improves efficiency because you can safely go back to work in that field almost immediately, unlike chemical herbicides.

Propane forklifts can be used both in barns and outdoors, improving efficiency to help you cut costs.

Protect your animals, produce in your greenhouse, and more with propane standby generators that keep the heat and water heaters running, the lights on, and more.
