Welcome to Barrett Propane Prescott, your trusted provider of high-quality eCommerce & Shopping - Appliances & electronics. Today, we are excited to share a significant milestone in our journey towards a greener future - the closure of our coal unit. In this detailed article, we will explain how this decision contributes to a cleaner grid and the positive impact it will have on the environment.

The Transition to Propane: A Cleaner Alternative

At Barrett Propane Prescott, we believe in the power of clean energy solutions. By closing our coal unit, we are taking a crucial step towards reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainability. Propane, the fuel of the future, serves as a cleaner alternative to coal. It is known for its eco-friendly nature, as it produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional fossil fuels.

Environmental Benefits of Closing the Coal Unit

By shutting down our coal unit, we are effectively reducing air pollution and improving the overall air quality in our surroundings. This contributes to a healthier living environment for our customers, employees, and the community at large. Propane, being a clean-burning fuel, releases fewer pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and particulate matter, which are detrimental to human health and the environment.

Contributing to a Greener Grid

Our decision to close the coal unit aligns with our commitment to building a cleaner grid. The switch to propane offers numerous benefits for energy production and distribution. Propane power generation is more efficient, providing a higher energy output for the same amount of fuel. This increased efficiency means that less fuel is required to generate the same amount of electricity, resulting in reduced emissions and greater energy conservation. Additionally, propane is a versatile fuel that can be easily integrated into existing infrastructure, making the transition smoother.

Renewable Energy Options

While the closure of our coal unit is a significant step towards sustainability, we recognize that it is essential to further explore renewable energy options. Barrett Propane Prescott is dedicated to researching and investing in innovative technologies. We strive to become a leader in renewable energy solutions, providing our customers with cleaner, more efficient alternatives that contribute to the global shift towards a sustainable future.


At Barrett Propane Prescott, we are proud to announce the closure of our coal unit as another essential step towards a cleaner grid. By embracing propane as a cleaner alternative, we are actively reducing emissions, improving air quality, and contributing to a greener future. We understand the importance of sustainable energy solutions and will continue to lead the way in providing cutting-edge eCommerce & Shopping - Appliances & electronics that align with our commitment to the environment.
