Gaining traction across the country, as evidenced by such reality shows as “Life Below Zero” (National Geographic Channel) and “Buying Alaska” (Discovery Channel), is the chance to live contently in an off grid environment.
With their plans for sustainable living, those that choose to live off grid – in a remote part of the United States (think Alaska) – have the opportunity of maintaining a standard of living by choosing to power their home with propane.
Propane: The Smart Choice
Propane, which is a by-product of natural gas processing and petroleum refining, is fast becoming the smart choice for off grid living. That’s because propane is one of the cleanest burning fuels that delivers reliable performance.
Propane gas, stored in stand-alone tanks (whether sitting or buried), when at normal temperatures and pressures evaporates quickly thus making it ideal for those that don’t wish to trade quality of location for quality of living.
Propane Fits Your Lifestyle
Whether you choose to live partially or completely off grid, with propane, you can still have all of the amenities of a modern-day home while still maintaining a self-sufficient lifestyle.
Generally speaking, a 500-gallon propane tank can easily accommodate an average four-bedroom home for quite a long time, whereas a propane tank twice that size can accommodate a very large home or business.
There’s more to propane than meets the eye! To fit your lifestyle there is a wide range of top-of-the-line appliances that have been designed to only operate from the energy that propane affords them.
Propane powered appliances include refrigerators, freezers, clothes dryers, ovens, stove tops, furnaces, barbecue grills, central heating systems, and best of all generators – without interruption.
Start Living Off Grid
If you’re ready to start living off grid, or being more self-sufficient without relying on costly electrical grids for your essential day-to-day living needs, you may want to consider giving propane a try.
For your safety, propane is designed to NOT go out in the event of a storm, and it’s also EMP (electromagnetic pulse) proof. For more information, or to order your propane supply, please feel free to give Arizona Propane a call at 480-990-2245.
