Fueling Municipalities

Western Canada is dotted with small communities in remote locations that are off the energy grid. How do homes, businesses, and municipalities in these areas access the fuel they need to function? At CanGas, we’re proud to be the propane supplier for several remote communities. Propane is a reliable, affordable, and clean-burning fuel source that is easily transportable and available off the power grid. Even some governments and communities within the range of traditional power sources use propane as a means to power vehicles and other equipment.


Propane-Powered Communities and Government Applications

Public Venus

Propane-powered generators, heaters, and combined heat and power systems are commonly used to heat public spaces in small off-grid communities. Propane is ideal for heating and powering community centres, arenas, municipal buildings, schools, and more.

Fleet Vehicles

Public transit, police cars, ambulances, and government vehicles can be converted to run on auto propane to lower fuel and maintenance costs, reduce environmental impact, and increase efficiency. Municipalities may install a centralized bulk storage tank and refuelling station to make refuelling more convenient.

School Buses

The cost-saving benefits of switching to propane-powered school buses could save school boards thousands of dollars and make room in provincial budgets for more teachers, extracurricular activities, and equipment upgrades.

Residential Power

Propane is one of the most versatile fuel sources and can be used to power an entire home. With centralized bulk storage, off-grid communities can provide propane to individual homes, supporting a cost-effective and clean fuel infrastructure.

Propane is recognized as ‘green’ energy due to its exceptional efficiency and clean-burning properties. Propane produces less than half the greenhouse gas emissions than electricity and oil and eliminates the risk of harmful spills and costly cleanups.
