Propane

PROPANE

Our goal is to provide our customers with a safe and reliable supply of clean burning gas. Central Region Cooperative offers a schedule fill program and remote tank monitors to take the worry out of running empty. We also have a will-call delivery program, in which you are responsible for checking your gauge and scheduling a delivery before your tank goes empty. There is a 200 gal minimum. We offer cash, budget, booked and contract pricing options to fit every financial situation.  Our team of experienced propane service technicians provides efficient system leak checks, system installations and other propane service and repairs. That’s peace of mind to count on.

Often times our Energy department receives questions in regards to expected propane usage for grain drying during the harvest season. We would like to share a helpful tool for patrons to calculate their expected usage, click the following link, https://propane.com/propane-products/grain-dryers/

FUEL TANK SALES & MAINTENANCE

Central Region Cooperative sells and services the storage tanks and equipment (pumps, nozzles and hoses) you need to maximize your fuel storage needs. Fuel tank maintenance is crucial now more than ever. CRC would like to encourage everyone to have a pressure cap assembly on their storage tanks in lieu of a flip cap and to change your filters every spring and fall.

To help you with tank maintenance, we’re offering to sample the fuel remaining in your tank for any existing contaminants when making deliveries. If this is something you’re interested in, please contact your local CRC energy office.
