Back Up Power with Propane
If you already use propane for your many household appliances (for heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying, etc.), it’s easy to add a generator. If you don’t have propane at already, AmeriGas can often can bury the tank so it’s out of sight. Propane emits fewer greenhouse gas emissions than either gasoline or diesel and is economical to store and transport. Propane also has a lower deterioration rate compared to gasoline or diesel, making it a better standby fuel source. For example, today’s gasoline with its high ethanol content, has a shelf life of only a few months. While it’s too late to get a propane generator for Sandy, you can plan ahead for the next storm. Call AmeriGas to find out more about planning for the next power outage with a back-up generator.
