GROWING CANNABIS — AND YOUR OPERATION. GROWING CANNABIS — AND YOUR OPERATION.
Eliminating the need for electrical or naural gas lines, propane allows you to expand your operation virtually anywhere.
Precise and Consistent
The reliable performance of propane is ideal for growing plants that demand a very specific temperature throughout their environment.
Propane can help you lower fuel costs every season. Modern building heaters are up to 11 percent more efficient than older models.
Plant-Safe and Clean
Propane is non-toxic for plants, plus it's a very low-emission fuel source, delivering a greener operation all around.

RELIABLE GREENHOUSE HEATING
When it comes to maintaining the precise conditions that cannabis requires, propane always delivers. It provides consistent heat in a low-emission, plant-safe way while also helping you cut fuel costs, making it the ideal choice for your greenhouse operation.
Clean POWER GENERATION THAT NEVER STOPS
Prime power generators fueled by propane produce up to 72 percent fewer sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions than using electricity. And when you fuel your operation with propane, unexpected blackouts or planned power outages are no longer a concern.
Will the odorant in propane harm my plants?
This is a common misconception. An odorant is added to propane for safety purposes, and is only detectable if there is a leak. It does not impact the health or growth of plants in any way. Growers should never attempt to use odorless propane for this reason.
How do I get started with propane building heat?
First, ask your equipment dealer for information on the propane building heaters that they carry. Then, work together to determine your equipment needs, and reach out to a propane supplier in your area to discuss a fueling schedule and contract. Don’t forget to apply for the Propane Farm Incentive Program once your equipment purchase has been confirmed.
What are the advantages of propane generators over diesel?
The indefinite shelf life of propane makes it an ideal fuel for generators, whereas diesel degrades over time and might not be ready when the power goes out. Propane also burns cleaner than diesel and can be stored onsite, either above or below ground, without risk of ground or groundwater contamination. Diesel, on the other hand, has the potential for contamination from spills and leaks that are retained in the soil.
