Why Choose Propane For Power Generation?

Whether your power generation needs are temporary or long-term, local or remote - Superior Propane offers expertise on custom designed power solutions that meet off-grid energy demands in even the most remote locations across Canada.

Propane Vs. Other Fuels

Superior Propane offers a cleaner, greener and more efficient alternative to Diesel and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Here’s how we compare.

  • Propane can reduce fuel costs by up to 40% compared to diesel. 
  • It reduces emissions by 15% and emits 98% less particulate matter than diesel. 
  • Propane vaporizes when released, eliminating the risk to water, ground or air. 
  • Propane burns cleaner, which means less wear and tear on equipment. That results in fewer service stops, less downtime, and lower maintenance costs.
  • Historically, diesel is up to 40% more expensive than propane.
  • Delivery costs to remote sites can be much higher than propane.
  • Risk of environmentally damaging spills and fuel contamination from long-term storage.
  • Diesel emissions are toxic because they contain particulate matter.
  • CNG is a cost-effective fuel source, however the savings are offset by higher transportation and storage costs.
  • Substantial infrastructure is required to compress and cool CNG.
  • In its vapour state, CNG has less energy than propane.

Propane Power Solution Options

Prime power means relying on propane for 100% of your power generation. Suitable for both large and small scale applications, propane generators deliver the power you need without the high cost of fuel and maintenance that comes with diesel generators. Using propane as your primary power source delivers uncompromised performance for less – less money, less maintenance, less emissions.
Bi-fuel, sometimes called dual-fuel, takes your current diesel engine and displaces up to 40% of the diesel fuel with propane.  Suitable for mid- and high-speed engines, the bi-fuel system provides seamless fuel flexibility and always ensures the most efficient ratio of propane-to-diesel for optimal equipment performance.  Engines work at a lower temperature, resulting in less maintenance and longer engine life.
A CHP system recovers lost heat from power generation to heat air or water. Suitable for businesses that can continuously apply the waste heat to another application.  By making wasted heat work for you, the CHP system increases your overall fuel efficiency. It not only ensures you have continuous power generation and lower energy consumption, but it also saves you money while meeting your facility's space-heating, water-heating and cooling demands.
