Propane gas associations

Propane gas associations represent the propane industry at national and state level. They are a key component of the propane landscape to the extent that they engage with national, state and local authorities regarding propane-related issues and monitor the propane industry to encourage industry members to adhere to certain consumer and safety-related standards.

As you request and compare quotes between different propane companies to find the one that is best adapted to your situation, bear in mind how important it is for companies to participate actively in national and state propane gas associations, especially when it comes to compliance and safety issues. Being an NPGA member costs most companies the modest sum of $382 per year.

The National Propane Gas Association

Founded in 1931, the NPGA groups 3,200 companies in 50 states and has 38 affiliated state or regional associations. The NPGA’s primary members are propane companies but the association also has members in appliance manufacturing, carburetion installation, container manufacturing, equipment manufacturing, insurance, manufacturer representation, wholesale, LPG transportation, vehicle fabrication and wholesale distribution of appliances, containers and equipment. The NPGA therefore brings together all segments of the propane industry at national level.

NPGA activities and services

The NPGA conducts its activities through a number of committees. The most important of these committees is the one overseeing the Certified Employee Training Program (CETP), which the NPGA implements for the Propane Education and Research Council and which ensures safety and compliance training for employees of the propane industry.

The NPGA also organizes a number of events and conventions to facilitate dialogue and information exchange between different industry members. It interacts with government to recommend policy and legislative changes related to propane in the US. The NPGA’s technology, standards and safety committee makes recommendations as regards storing, transporting and using propane and the member services committee establishes services offered to industry members that might answer their needs.

The NPGA further produces a number of key reports for industry members on government affairs, legislation, energy trends, etc., which companies use to decide on what they offer customers. NPGA councils assist members on issues they feel might concern them by overseeing independent business councils on a variety of topics.

State propane gas associations

Each state has its own propane gas association that works in a similar manner to the NPGA. Therefore, by paying a modest yearly fee, propane industry members are offered a certain number of services regarding state government affairs, business services and especially safety regulations compliance and training.

State propane gas associations place particular emphasis on safety and training – all the more reason to ensure propane companies from which you request quotes are active in their state propane association. State propane gas associations sometimes also provide information on where each propane company is located and will have general information on all its members, which customers might find useful in their quest for the idea propane company.
