BioLPG, an exciting new renewable off-grid gas, has now reached the UK. Here, the rural energy experts at Calor gas explain all…
If you live in the country, with no access to mains gas, you may spend a lot more time than the average city dweller thinking about how best to fuel your home.
Perhaps you’ve thought about renewable technologies but are concerned about their long-term reliability or upfront costs?
What’s more, with the Government recently announcing its new Clean Growth Strategy - which encourages off-grid homeowners to consider the environmental impact of their fuel choice - you may be weighing up cleaner, lower carbon fuels to future-proof your home energy.
Well, if you’re an eco-conscious homeowner, you can now do your bit towards a greener, cleaner environment with the launch of the UK’s first BioLPG fuel supply, available exclusively from Calor.
A great alternative to oil
Traditionally oil heating has been one of the most common forms of rural heating; however, its carbon footprint is higher than alternative energy sources such as LPG or renewables. As oil is also an easy target for thieves, you may want to consider a more secure way to heat your home.
Many homeowners without access to mains gas opt for LPG to fuel their property as it provides all the benefits of gas for heating, hot water and cooking.
BioLPG from Calor takes these benefits one step further. It is identical to standard LPG but is created from a mix of renewable and sustainably sourced raw materials. This means that using BioLPG will reduce your carbon footprint for home heating by 38 per cent compared to heating oil.
A cost-effective option
The other great benefit is that BioLPG has the same chemical composition as LPG, so if you’re already using LPG, there’s no need to change or upgrade your current heating system or cooking appliances.
Switching to BioLPG from conventional LPG also means there are no upfront costs to cover either, unlike if you were to opt for another renewable energy option such as heat pumps or solar panels.
Getting supplies of BioLPG is easy too as, just like its standard LPG delivery service, Calor will deliver BioLPG straight to your home when required. So, with Calor BioLPG, it just got a lot easier to ‘go green.’
