Commercial Propane: How Can Hotels Benefit From Gas Power?

In our last post we touched on how using propane gas to power a restaurant is beneficial for business. It is no surprise that propane is also a smart fuel alternative for hotels as well.

There are specific types of small businesses that consume more energy than others and would benefit from switching to propane power, such as hotels and motels.


Hotels can reduce energy costs…

Hotels & Motels can reduce costly energy costs by switching to propane gas. Propane is cheaper than electricity (natural gas), and it’s much more energy-efficient.

Hotels & Motels

Lights left on in multiple rooms as well as blasting HVAC are just a couple of reasons why hotels are high energy consuming businesses. Include around-the-clock laundry service and electronics running in the rooms throughout the day and you know the monthly bill is staggering.

You can encourage guests to reuse towels and turn off lights to cut down on costs, but powering your hotel with propane adds even more when it comes to being environmentally friendly and consuming less energy than electric.

A combined heat and power (CHP) system uses propane gas to generate electricity capable of powering a building, while capturing heat generated from the working engine to produce hot water.

How Can Propane Power Your Hotel?

Outdoor Heating & Lighting

If your hotel has a designated outdoor area, you can use propane to power lighting. It can also heat swimming pools, spas, and if nights get chilly, portable gas powered space heaters can provide instant warmth.


Propane powers many appliances, including washers and dryers.

Back-Up Emergency Generators

A great way to power up and stay sustainable during emergencies is by keeping operations running with propane.

Vehicles (Shuttle Service)

Autogas costs 30% less than gasoline, and it also burns cleaner than regular petrol.

If you’re looking for new ways to save on monthly bills with your small business venture, consider making the switch in what type of energy you are using.
