Cleaner, Cheaper Mowing with Commercial Propane

With lawn mowing season upon us, there’s never been a better time to think propane.  According to the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), propane gas service is the future of landscaping services. Landscapers all over the country are relying on propane as the alternative fuel of choice to boost productivity and save time and money.

ThompsonGas can provide your lawn mowing or landscaping business the commercial propane you need to reduce operating costs and increase business & performance speeds. Here are a few reasons upgrading your lawn mowing equipment and powering with commercial propane is a smart choice for your business:

  • Propane is competitively priced and costs less to operate than conventionally fueled mowers and trimmers. On a daily basis, a 72-inch riding lawnmower powered by propane instead of gasoline can save you between $20-$30!
  • Propane-fueled lawn mowing equipment provides the same proven performance plus increased productivity compared to gasoline or diesel equipment.
  • Equipment powered by propane gas service runs cleaner than gasoline or diesel, releasing up to 26% less greenhouse gas emissions and as much as 60% less carbon monoxide.
  • Propane is made in the U.S. It’s an abundant, domestic fuel, and refueling is easy because of existing propane delivery services from ThompsonGas.
  • Propane-powered lawn mowers deliver less downtime and less maintenance.
  • Additional savings are possible as fuel spillage, leakage and even theft are virtually eliminated.

PERC also offers exciting mower incentive programs that equal extra savings. The Propane Mower Incentive Program gives landscape contractors $1,000 per qualifying new propane mower purchase or $500 per qualifying mower conversion. Participants must provide feedback and performance data for one mowing season in exchange.

ThompsonGas also offers propane autogas for commercial landscapers. Dedicated propane lawn mowers & other landscaping equipment operate from a centralized propane refueling station located on your premises, saving you time and operating expenses. It’s simple, onsite and cost-effective. Your employees will be more efficient and get on the road much quicker because their fuel source is onsite. Mow more grass while making more money!

There’s never been a better time for landscaping contractors to switch to propane service. To learn more about our commercial propane offerings for landscapers and other industries, visit our website.

Don’t Pay More for Gasoline — Switch to Commercial Propane for Vehicles

According to AAA, the average price of a gallon of gasoline has skyrocketed 45 cents in the last 31 days, marking the fastest increase since 2005. The same report says that retail gasoline prices have climbed for 33 consecutive days. With such historically high prices, there’s never been a better time to switch to commercial propane to power your fleet vehicles, buses, work trucks, forklifts, lawn equipment and more.

Propane services can meet the performance needs of high-mileage, high-runtime vehicles. Ranging from police cruisers to bus and truck fleets, a number of vehicles can benefit from versatile, reliable and cheap propane. Unlike gasoline, which AAA Mid-Atlantic Spokesperson John Townsend says has reached the most expensive it’s ever been in the dead of winter, vehicle operators using propane service can earn alternative fuel tax credits of 50 cents per every gallon of propane sold.
