Developers and Builders working off the grid have found a solution to their dual-fuels requirements: Propane Gas Systems from HBH Gas Systems. The systems provide clean, economical LP gas to off grid developments worldwide.
The phrase "Off Grid" typically refers to life beyond the energy infrastructure. Off Grid houses are eco-friendly solutions to our reliance on the overwhelmingly carbon-heavy electric grid. Central Gas Systems effectively decrease the number of homes that are built all-electric. HBH's propane systems can even power backup generators for renewable energy initiatives such as wind and solar generation.
Off grid communities are located beyond the reach of the natural gas infrastructure, or where the cost of main line extensions is prohibitively high to provide a community with gas service. Developers and builders working off the grid have traditionally had only one option: build all-electric homes. The disadvantages of this option are clear and wide-ranging. All-electric homes are much more expensive to heat than homes fueled by gas (in fact, it costs about twice as much to heat a home with electricity than with propane). Moreover, homeowners simply prefer having gas in their homes - from the familiar blue flame of a gas range to the warmer air from a gas furnace. From an environmental standpoint, the benefits are clear: a home that uses LP gas instead of electricity for space and water heating effectively offsets the carbon emissions or one average vehicle. Central Propane Systems from HBH Gas Systems offer the only viable alternative to building less desirable, less efficient all-electric homes.
Off grid living is increasingly becoming affiliated with eco-friendly practices. Living off the grid, going green, and reducing carbon footprints are integral parts of a sustainable future. HBH Gas Systems meets the demands of consumers and green builders by providing centralized, metered service of an alternative green energy recognized by the Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act. When developers choose to provide their off grid developments with gas from an HBH gas system, their decision reflects a commitment to sustainable development and eco-friendly living - all while enjoying the tremendous marketing advantage of offering dual-fuels in their communities. Builders benefit from the implementation of high efficiency gas appliances in place of low efficiency, grid-hogging, carbon-heavy electric appliances.
HBH Gas Systems specializes in the marketing, design, and implementation of fully-engineered Central Gas Distribution Systems worldwide. HBH gas systems serve developments of all sizes with homes built by established national, regional, and custom builders.
