Resilience is a growing focus for facility managers seeking to safeguard their buildings against disasters and financial losses. An article in Engineered Systems states three reasons to consider propane for a facility’s backup fuel. The article explains that a standby generator fueled by propane can resist hazards brought on by major disasters and even reduce the magnitude of a disruptive event.
The article mentions that using propane as a backup fuel instead of diesel brings numerous benefits. For starters, propane’s superior shelf life makes it the ideal backup fuel for generators, whereas diesel degrades over time. Propane also burns cleaner, is non-toxic, won’t contaminate soil or water, and produces 16 percent fewer carbon emissions per unit of energy compared with diesel.
