Community Propane Gas Service

Will a Community Propane Gas System work for your Project? Propane distribution systems, such as Sharp Energy’s Community Gas Systems™ (CGS) are an innovative source for growing your business. Community Gas Systems allow you to build a safe, reliable and convenient subdivision in a suburban area, offering the amenities of an urban setting with little or no added cost to developers. Likewise, for commercial projects, Community Gas Systems provide a flexible, innovative solution in areas where no natural gas lines currently exist. All gas tanks are centrally located with buried gas lines — enhancing the appearance of the community. Sharp Energy’s Community Gas Systems are similar to the structure of natural gas systems and are convertible if natural gas becomes available.
