Collett’s Commitment to Community and Sustainability

July 3, 2024 / Back to Blog

At Collett Propane, we pride ourselves on being more than just a propane provider. We are a dedicated member of the communities we serve, committed to promoting sustainability and environmental stewardship. Our commitment is reflected in every aspect of our business, from our environmentally friendly propane products to our active community involvement.

Embracing Sustainable Energy

Propane is widely recognized as a green energy source. According to the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992, propane is classified as a low-carbon alternative fuel. This classification stems from its significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to other fossil fuels. Propane produces fewer carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and particulate matter, which helps reduce air pollution and improve air quality​​.

Moreover, propane is non-toxic and water-insoluble, meaning it poses minimal risk to soil and groundwater in the event of a spill. Its clean-burning properties make it an excellent choice for reducing the carbon footprint of residential, commercial, and industrial energy use.

Community-Focused Initiatives

Our dedication to the community goes beyond providing clean energy. We actively participate in local sustainability efforts and community development projects. From restoring open spaces to supporting local clean-up events, Collett Propane is committed to fostering a cleaner, greener environment.

In Deland, Florida, for example, propane plays a crucial role in the community’s energy landscape. Residents rely on propane for heating and cooking, while local businesses use it to power equipment and enhance energy efficiency. This widespread use of propane not only meets the community’s energy needs but also underscores our commitment to environmentally friendly solutions.

Propane: The Path to a Low-Carbon Future

The future of energy is increasingly leaning towards renewable and sustainable sources, and propane is no exception. Advances in propane technology are paving the way for even greener applications. For instance, renewable propane, made from plant and vegetable oils, animal fats, or used cooking oil, offers a significantly lower carbon intensity compared to traditional propane​​.

Propane’s versatility extends to various innovative uses, including its role in powering medium-duty vehicles. These vehicles produce 25% fewer greenhouse gases, 97% less nitrogen oxide emissions, and 99.99% less particulate matter than modern diesel vehicles. Such innovations highlight propane’s potential in contributing to a cleaner, more sustainable transportation sector​​.

Collaborations and Innovations

The propane industry is actively collaborating with other sectors, such as solar, wind, and electric power, to develop comprehensive and sustainable energy solutions. These collaborations are crucial for achieving net-zero emissions in homes, buildings, and transportation systems. By working together, we can create cost-effective and climate-friendly energy solutions that benefit everyone​.
