Home Generators and Propane Companies

An Honest Discussion

Your Dilemma

You’ve just spent several thousand dollars to purchase and install a standby generator. You call the propane company to arrange for gas connection and discover that it will cost hundreds more for that work PLUS a tank of propane at $1,000 or more. You hadn’t planned for that.

The Propane Company’s Dilemma

Generator-only customers are typically unprofitable for propane companies because most require large, expensive tanks and the gas usage will be quite small. The chances of ever recovering costs aren’t very good. Annual tank rentals of about $200 usually apply in an effort to offset the equipment investment.

The Result

You’re left with a big bill up-front that you weren’t anticipating and annual tank rental bills leaving you feeling like the propane company doesn’t care about you as a customer. The propane company faces the choice of alienating you as a customer or losing money. But, there is a better way…
