Bulk tanks are a convenient way to store propane to power homes and businesses. One tank can be sized to serve all of the home’s or business’ needs based on its total maximum load, measured in British thermal units (Btu), or multiple smaller tanks can be manifolded together.
For complexes with many homes, Home Gas is able to install a metered distribution system to individually supply each home with the amount of propane needed. The metered propane distribution system is supplied with propane from a single large tank or group of tanks. Locating the tanks safely below or above ground away from the individual homes or units is both aesthetically pleasing and efficient. The propane is distributed to each home through the use of underground gas lines, thus eliminating the need for individual smaller tanks.
Each home is billed for only the propane it uses each month, as indicated by their meter, which enables the cost of gas to be spread out over the year. The ample supply of propane fed from the distribution system means the customer won’t have to worry about running out of gas. Serving and filling the tanks from one location also reduces the number of propane deliveries within that complex or community.
Home Gas is able to provide a complete turnkey solution for a metered distribution system tailored to your specific community.
