IS IT WORTHWHILE GETTING QUALIFIED IN LPG?
The UK’s gas grid network extends to 84% of UK households. Of the remaining 16%, 2 million properties are rural off-grid homes that without LPG would not otherwise have access to gas as a clean, versatile and efficient fuel. LPG is, therefore, a key feature of the UK’s energy mix ensuring that these homes can access gas and the advantages provided by gas-powered systems and technologies.
