According to the Department of Energy, as of 2009 more than 48 million households utilize propane for heating and cooking as well as a backup source of power. This widespread use is translating into a growing number of businesses realizing the cost-effective and environmental-friendly benefits of propane as an energy source.

Propane is a smart choice for operating large stoves and fryers as well as refrigeration units, heating water in commercial-sized water heaters, providing heat for office space and warehouses, and supplying power to greenhouses. And these are just a few examples of the ways in which propane services a wide variety of commercial customers.

Further examples of commercial and other establishments that benefit from the use of propane are:

  • Hotels and motels
  • Schools
  • Construction sites
  • Churches
  • Retirement homes
  • Laundromats
  • Production plants

The National Propane Gas Association states that industrial uses for propane range from soldering and cutting to brazing and vulcanizing. Propane is also used in the manufacture of plastics by some petrochemical industries. Farm use for propane includes crop drying and fruit ripening as well as a means to provide heat to barns and chicken houses.

Diversified Energy stands ready to supply the propane you will need for any of these types of commercial settings.

The Future of Propane in Commercial Settings

We expect to see ample growth in one area of propane use for commercial customers: propane auto gas. Propane auto gas is already being utilized for many school buses and shuttles, and more and more businesses are turning to commercial vehicle fleets that are powered by this versatile fuel.

Propane auto gas is also a popular choice for powering forklifts in many warehouses and Diversified Energy offers the choice of delivering propane cylinders or in bulk so that businesses can keep their important equipment moving.

What’s more, we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk — one-third of our delivery trucks run on propane auto gas. Are you ready to make the change? Diversified Energy can even help you convert your present fleet and even set up refueling stations on site. How’s that for service?
