Here comes the sun – and Ferrellgas propane!

Thanks to ongoing advances in solar technology, we’ve gotten better and better at harnessing the power of the sun. This makes solar panels an intriguing option for those interested in living off the grid. 

But with apologies to Little Orphan Annie, one would be foolish to bet his or her bottom dollar that there’ll be sun. Not tomorrow. Not ever. 

Propane: The best backup to solar energy

Thankfully, propane serves as the perfect backup to a solar water heating system and a perfect complement to those who also prefer the benefit of gas-burning appliances such as stovetops in their off-grid cottage or home. 

Put another way, it’s yet another way that propane provides significant flexibility to architects, builders, and, most importantly, homeowners.

The Washington, D.C.-based Propane Education & Research Council has created a great video that showcases the storybook marriage that can be formed between propane and solar. Check it out now by clicking here or watching below. 


The demand for off-grid comfort and luxury is growing, and propane continues to provide the power homeowners want and need. If you’re interested in learning more, be sure to contact your local Ferrellgas office today.
