Move your house off the grid affordably by plugging into propane.

Propane is available in rural or remote locations making living off the grid easy. Propane generators can even serve as a primary energy source for modern off-the-grid homes. Cogeneration, or Combined Heat and Power (CHP) units are now available that produce heat in addition to electricity. Propane off-the-grid power systems are housed outside, usually adjacent to a carport or other non-living space.

Propane for Off-the-Grid

Abundant and Made in the U.S.A
All of the propane consumed in the U.S. is produced in North America. Using propane for an off-grid power system contributes to America’s energy independence. Abundant supply in the U.S. allows propane customers ample opportunity to ensure that they’ll always have enough on hand for their needs, so propane is a dependable energy source all year long.

Reliability
People like heating their home and water with propane because they know they will have a reliable supply of propane on hand whenever they need it. Unlike other energy sources, propane customers can contract for and store their energy supply on-site for the ultimate level of security. Having a propane tank on their property gives them the ability to store an off grid energy supply that’s always ready for immediate use.

Versatility
Propane can fuel just about any system, whether it’s inside your home, in your backyard or on the road.

Affordability
Propane appliances save hundreds, even thousands of dollars in annual energy costs compared to electric energy. Missouri’s propane consumers also have many local options for price, service and terms. Electric providers have monopoly-like territories without competition to provide the best price.
