LP (Liquid Petroleum) gas suppliers are gearing up to meet the ever increasing demand for alternative energy
South Africans everywhere are talking about electricity; or rather the lack thereof. In 2008 we experienced serious load shedding for the first time. Seven years later and it is back as part of our daily lives, and everybody talking about it – from politicians to housewives to farmers to shopkeepers to LP gas suppliers.
Years of cheap reliable electricity created a nation completely dependent on electricity. LP gas was something restaurants and industries used and restaurants only used it because it was quicker to cook on gas. Or so we thought…
LP gas is a versatile energy source with hundreds of applications, including cooking, heating, air conditioning and transportation. Even the Olympic torch relies on LP gas to keep the flame burning! LP gas suppliers have seen a steady increase in demand over the last few years and with the current national electricity supplier situation, they are gearing up to meet the increased demand for alternative energy.
LP gas have numerous advantages and as informed consumers we must make the best decision when it comes to energy sources. LP gas is a clean-burning sustainable and efficient fuel source. LP gas shows lower greenhouse gas emissions than petrol, diesel, and electricity on an energy-equivalent basis. LP gas is very clean burning and has lower greenhouse gas emissions than any other fossil fuel when measured on a total fuel cycle. LP gas can be transported, stored, and used virtually anywhere in the world. It does not require a fixed network and will not deteriorate over time.
The number of LP gas suppliers has increased over the last few years and it is important that you choose your supplier with care. All LP gas suppliers are not equal. The safety of your family, home, employees and business is at stake when choosing a LP gas supplier. Some points to note when choosing a LP gas supplier: Ask for the company’s safety and compliance records. Ensure that the company is registered with the necessary regulatory agencies and associations. Check the company’s environmental policies. Ask for references.
