Propane is a relatively uncommon fuel, with only around 26,000 users.
It can be used for indoor heating, domestic hot water and cooking.

Propane is derived from crude oil. It makes more sense in rural areas than in urban areas for the obvious reason that there is space for the tank and also because it does not need a connection to a supply network.



The prosThe cons
  • Limited harmful emissions
  • No need to connect to a public supply system
  • External tank, which must be installed at a safe distance from the house, road or garden and lighting sources.
  • High cost
