    It's a FACT - Propane is a California Farmer's Secret Solution for Diesel Engine Retirement

    Last updated 3 years ago

    California farmers face a historic challenge in 2014. Our drought has created conditions that threaten the water supplies that irrigate a wide variety of crops from the Sacramento Valley all the way down to the San Diego border. Adding to that crisis, California farmers will be required in the next few years to retire their old diesel irrigation engines in order to comply with stricter air quality regulations mandated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

    This is bad timing. Water is scarce which means it's also expensive. Buying new irrigation engines only makes the economics of farming in California more difficult. It's an equation that will lead to higher prices at the grocery store in the very near future.

    There is good news and it comes with an ironic twist. Propane-fueled irrigation engines are now available in California and they not only satisfy the new air quality regulations, they offer tremendous fuel savings vs. the cost of diesel fuel. For California farmers who grow everything from almonds to zucchini, the lower emissions and fuel bills could not come at a better time.

    The irony is that farmers are famous for keeping their success stories under the radar. We're working with growers who report nothing but total satisfaction from their new LP irrigation engines but they are quite secretive about the whole story.

    You read it here - the drought is very bad. Diesel engine emissions are very bad. Farmers using new propane irrigation engines are secretly happy. Pass it on!

    Mid-to-Late October is a beautiful time of year in the Sierra Mountains. The days are cool, the air is crisp and you can enjoy time away without the crowds that are frequently found at campgrounds in the summertime.

    If you are headed to higher elevations, stop by one of our stores (Manteca. Sacramento, Placerville, Pioneer, Sonora, Delhi, Dinuba, etc) and buy your Little Kamper refillable propane tanks for your camp stove, lantern or portable heater.

    The Little Kamper is the first 1lb propane tank designed to be safely refilled so it saves you money on propane! When you choose the Little Kamper instead of throw-away propane tanks you are also helping to reduce the volume of propane tanks that end up in campground dumpsters and landfills.

    Little Kamper refillable propane tanks are on sale now at 12 Kamps Propane stores around California for only $12.99 (prefilled). The best part is that you can exchange your empty Little Kamper at our stores for only $1.99 when you need a refill.

    So go ahead - take that early Fall trip. Just remember to stop and see us on your way out of town!

    Thank Heaven for RAIN and Firefighters!

    The storm that blew into Northern California yesterday was tremendously helpful for the firefighters doing battle with the King fire.

    Cooler winds and a slow steady rain helped to really give relief to area residents. We're hopeful the corner has been turned on this battle...

    At last count, there were over 7,000 firefighters engaged in this fight. We can't begin to express how grateful we are for the support from outside agencies to join our local teams to protect our homes, families and forest.

    Where Were You When The Towers Fell?

    For generations of Americans, the cry "Remember Pearl Harbor" has always been hard to understand. Our parents and grandparents knew as adults on December 7, 1941 a lesson that we could not learn as children from books.

    September 11 changed that for a new set of generations. Thousands of our fellow Americans died. Millions of American lives were changed in the course of a few hours. We are all seared with the painful memory of watching the world change before our eyes.

    Take a moment to give thanks for the service and sacrifices of the people who protect our freedom. September 11th will always be our day to never forget.

    Home builders represent many things in the communities where we work and live. They are the hard-working family-owned companies that employ our friends and neighbors with good wages. They make the American dream come true as they construct the living room, kitchen and bedrooms for a new home buyer. For our economy, the success of local home builders foreshadows the success of the many other local businesses on Main street.

    The best comfort and economic performance in your new home comes from installing high-efficiency propane appliances. Between an on-demand hot water heater, gas fireplace and high-efficiency furnace, your propane-fueled appliances can help you stay comfortable and save money on energy!

    We do our best to make the home building process easy and worry-free. We are dedicated to helping our local builders by facilitating the propane tank installation process. Ask your builder to contact us and we'll coordinate the tank and pipe installation for your new home.

    For some subdivisions, HOA rules call for the installation of underground propane tanks. This home in Shingle Springs is being prepared for the installation of a 499 gallon tank. Our technicians are working directly with the builder and the local fire department to make certain that everything is done correctly, on time and on budget!

    New home construction is a great sign of better economic times and we love working with new home buyers and builders. Be sure to contact us when you are planning the construction of your new home and we'll make sure you get the very best propane system installation and reliable propane delivery for your dream home!
