HBH Gas Systems Announces New Environmental Impact Statistics for Central Propane Distribution Systems

From August 29, 2007 --

HBH Gas Systems has announced new environmental statistics for their off grid central propane distribution systems. Their new statistics are based largely on a recent study conducted by Energetics, Inc. for the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC). HBH Gas Systems specializes in the marketing, design, and implementation of fully-engineered Central Gas Distribution Systems. Each system allows the homes in an off grid community to be supplied with propane from a single facility, eliminating the need for individual tanks. The gas is distributed, metered, serviced and billed just like natural gas.

HBH Gas Systems has partnered with Ferrellgas to provide developments located off the natural gas grid with clean-burning propane from a single tank. Central gas distribution systems provide developments with the economic convenience and efficiency of an environmentally responsible gas product endorsed by the EPA as an alternative green fuel.

A single home using an HBH Gas System for water and space heating in lieu of electricity eliminates approximately 8.5 tons of carbon emissions per year, effectively offsetting the carbon emissions from one average vehicle. Fueling the water and space heating requirements of an average 500 home development with a central propane system instead of electricity offsets about 4,250 tons of carbon emissions per year. Propane is an EPA approved alternative energy per the Clean Air and Energy Policy Acts.

Propane-powered water heaters produce 60% less carbon emissions than electric powered water heaters. Propane is non-toxic and insoluble, so it offers minimal risk to aquifer and ground water supplies. In addition, 30 houses with wood-burning fireplaces create as much particulate pollution as 30,000 houses with gas fireplaces.
