A wide range of Southern Maryland businesses rely on propane for their success. Those businesses include:
For more than 65 years, Taylor Gas has been working with local businesses to make sure they have the propane they need to get the job done.
Propane is the fuel of choice for restaurants and commercial kitchens, because not only is it energy efficient but it provides the even heating and precise temperature control that chefs need in order to create large quantities of food while keeping quality high.
Propane forklifts are cleaner and greener than ones using other fuel sources. They also last longer, are better on inclines, are more powerful than electric forklifts and aren’t sidelined for hours to recharge.
Landscapers love propane, because their commercial mowers have lower emissions and need less maintenance. Also, refueling is easier and safer.
Propane powers temporary heating at construction sites so that work can be done safely and so that paint, plaster, concrete and joint compound can dry and cure properly.
Farmers in southern Maryland are incredibly busy, often working 10 hours or more a day.
Propane and propane-powered equipment and vehicles help our farmers cut costs and maximize efficiency.
The agriculture here St. Mary’s, Calvert, Prince George’s and Charles Counties is diverse. Our farm products include soybeans, broilers and other chickens for meat, aquaculture, corn, and other fruits and vegetables.
And propane works for all of those kinds of farms. Here are some of the ways:
Livestock barn heating: There are close to 20,000 broiler/meat chickens at poultry farms in our area — along with the cows, horses, pigs, laying chickens and other livestock on other farms — that need to be kept warm. Propane’s safe and efficient heating of barns and poultry houses keeps livestock warm with lower energy costs.
Generators: Propane lights, ventilates and heats your barns when the power goes out with greater efficiency and fewer emissions than generators run by gasoline.
Greenhouse heating: Cold snap? No worries! Propane greenhouse heating systems keep plants safe with more efficiency and lower energy costs than other fuel sources.
Weed control: Eliminate the need for herbicides with a propane-powered flame weeder. Not only is it more effective, but you don’t have to wait after treatment to go back to work in the field.
