Frequently Asked Questions

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.
