Commercial propane generators

Commercial propane generators are important for businesses because they can help prevent power outages from having a big impact. For example, healthcare facilities can use them to keep patients safe, and grocery stores can use them to keep perishable and frozen foods at safe temperatures. Additionally, propane generators can help make sure that HVAC systems and other essential technologies stay up and running when the power goes out.

Propane for construction

Construction sites need to find ways to keep working, even when the weather gets colder. Propane can help with this by providing space heaters for indoors and thawing equipment for outdoors, so that paving and concrete work can still take place. Additionally, propane generators help charge batteries for other pieces of equipment, always keeping them ready to go.

Propane forklifts

Propane-powered forklifts offer a bevy of benefits as compared to electric or gasoline models. Take, for example, the fact that with a propane model you can simply swap out an empty cylinder for a full one and it’s good to go again. There’s no downtime like with electric battery recharging (which takes eight hours minimum) or the risk of messy fuel spillage which is inherent with gasoline-powered forklifts. They can also be used both indoors and outdoors. Plus, they’re environmentally friendly which is always a bonus.

Propane for fleet fueling

Fleet fueling can be a major expense and workload for many businesses. Our propane autogas services streamline your fleet fueling because it’s on-site at your business, improving efficiency. Autogas is also more cost-effective than gasoline or diesel, emissions are dramatically reduced, and fuel theft is virtually eliminated.

Propane for hospitality businesses

Tourism brings in about $22 billion to the Wisconsin economy annually and generates $1.4 billion in tax revenue. Each year, over 100 million people travel to Wisconsin, helping to support approximately 170,000 jobs.

Propane is a great energy source for the following businesses: hotels, inns, vacation home rentals, restaurants, supper clubs, resorts, event centers and banquet halls.

Propane can power many appliances for commercial kitchens, such as cooktops and ovens, including areas where there are no natural gas lines available. Propane-powered appliances also include broilers, water heaters, warming trays, and grills.

Not only can propane be used for cooking in hotels, inns, and bed-and-breakfasts, but it is also the perfect fuel source for high-efficiency heating systems, water heaters, and commercial dryers. In fact, these dryers powered by propane get laundry done 25% faster than electric ones while also reducing wear and tear on clothing as well as wrinkles. This makes housekeeping work more efficiently overall.

Propane for agriculture

While dairy may come to mind first when you think of Wisconsin, there’s much more to our state than milk, butter, and cheese. Our agriculture is quite diverse!

In our state, there are 64,000 farms and we’re the nation’s leading producer of cranberries, snap beans for processing, ginseng, and milk goats. More than 435,000 people work in agriculture, which contributes over $104 billion to the state economy.

Using propane helps farmers in many ways. Propane efficiently heats barns, greenhouses, and other outbuildings while providing power for standby generators for homes and outbuildings. Additionally, flame weed control with propane is an environmentally friendly alternative to harmful herbicides that contaminate the soil, and you can get back to work in the field almost immediately!

A cold spell during early springtime can devastate apple crops. However, propane-powered orchard heaters that suck propane as its power source can help preserve the sensitive trees from freezing temperatures.
