What a Gas. Fuelling Life with Propane

Many people may not think much about propane until the barbeque runs out, the steaks are on the grill, and you have guests arriving in 20 minutes.

But at McDougall Energy, we think about propane a lot. We think about propane a lot because thousands of customers rely on propane as a primary or backup energy source for their homes, businesses, appliances, equipment, or machinery.

Propane is a clean, efficient, cost-effective, and readily available energy source that packs more power than electricity, is more environmentally friendly than oil, and is more portable than natural gas.

BBQs aren’t the only appliance commonly fuelled by propane.  Propane is a key energy source for many homeowners and businesses.

In fact, stoves, ranges, clothes dryers, refrigerators, water tanks, heaters, furnaces, and even air conditioning units are also fuelled by propane.  Propane fuels vehicles and trucks, farm equipment and forklifts, heavy equipment and more!  And while most urban dwellers may rely on electricity or natural gas, propane is the energy source of choice for thousands of rural, remote, urban and agricultural customers across Canada.
