OPGA is and shall remain committed to increasing the effectiveness of gas service for light, heat, and power; to advancing the methods of manufacture, distribution, utilization, sales, and accounting relative to this industry; to advancing the public’s knowledge of, and appreciation for, the unique qualities of propane as well as its various and diverse uses; and shall encourage, now and in the future, economic advancement, safety, conservation and standardization within this industry.

PROUDLY PROPANE

About the only thing that may be more comforting than an old, well-worn sweatshirt is the family dog (either old or new).  In this case, the dog’s name is Blue, and Blue is a valued member of the Propane Family.  The Propane Education and Research Council recently kicked off a new $10 million public education campaign featuring Blue as its spokesman.  We know what you’re thinking. ”What in the world was PERC thinking hiring a dog as its spokesman?”  Oddly enough, PERC’s spokesman doesn’t have a speaking role.  Instead, through the wonders of modern technology, Blue’s thoughts come through to us loud and clear.  As Blue is happy to tell you (well, not actually tell), he loves the peace and quiet of country living.  But, Blue loves propane even more…because of its convenience and for dozens of other reasons.  Stick around and Blue will eventually tell them all (again, not actually tell). And, if you liked The Energy Guys, you’re bound to love Blue.

But don’t take our word for it.  Click on Blue’s photo and he’ll tell (there’s that word again) you all about propane…provided he’s not getting his ears and/or belly rubbed at the time.  If he is, well, on those occasions, Blue has been known to make little or no sense.   Would you?  Didn’t think so…so don’t be too hard on Blue!

What is Liquefied Petroleum Gas?

Commonly referred to as Propane, LP Gas is one of the nation’s most versatile sources of energy. In fact, propane fuels everything from the rides at Disney World to the Olympic Torch. Propane also supplies about 4 percent of our total energy needs.

Propane exists both as a liquid and as a gas. At atmospheric pressure and temperatures above –44 F, propane is a non-toxic, colorless and odorless gas. An identifying odor is added to propane so it can be readily detected. When contained in an approved cylinder or tank, propane exists both as a liquid and a vapor. The vapor is released from the container as a clean-burning fuel gas. Propane is also 270 times more compact as a liquid than as a gas making it economical to store and to transport. Approximately 90 percent of our propane supplies are produced here in the United States and another 7 percent comes from Canada. Propane is produced from the refining of crude oil and the processing of natural gas and it’s a readily available, secure energy source whose environmental benefits are widely recognized. Propane is an approved alternative clean fuel included in the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992.
