The Power of Propane: Greg’s Journey to Energy Savings

Customer Introduction

In a world where energy efficiency and sustainable living have taken centre stage, many aspire to find methods to reduce energy consumption without sacrificing convenience. Greg, a resident in Grand Cayman, embarked on a journey to save energy by switching from electric to propane-powered appliances, courtesy of Clean Gas’ innovative Home Efficiency Loan Programme (HELP). The outcome? A 33% decrease in his energy costs and a sustainable lifestyle.

The Challenge

Greg, like many others living in Grand Cayman, experienced an increasing strain on monthly budget due to rising energy costs. Due to the tropical climate of Cayman and increases in costs of electricity island wide, CUC bills have skyrocketed. Alternative solutions have surfaced to save residents money and also align with a growing commitment in the community to carbon footprint reduction. 

Propane-powered appliances serve as an energy-efficient and environmentally responsible option. As a clean-burning fuel, propane emits fewer greenhouse gases than traditional fossil fuels. Those interested in converting from electric to propane appliances may be concerned about the initial investment required for purchasing and installing new appliances.
