Flying the flag for LPG in Cornwall

AvantiGas is flying the flag for LPG as the cleaner, greener alternative to fuels such as oil and coal.

As a national supplier with a local focus, they’re proud to already be supplying hundreds of homes and businesses in Cornwall from their St. Austell depot.

Liquefied petroleum gas is playing a big and growing role in preserving our beautiful Cornish countryside, emitting significantly less carbon dioxide and fewer toxic particles than coal and oil. Because LPG readily evaporates, there are fewer environmental risks – and much lower clean-up costs – in the event of a spill. It’s a highly efficient, eco-friendly off-grid fuel that can be used for heating, cooking and more – making it both flexible and affordable.

Delivering LPG to isolated customers via the narrow country lanes of Devon and Cornwall is a challenge that local driver Dave has been meeting for 16 years…

 “Some of the places we have to go to, people say ‘I can’t believe you got that truck in there!’ well, we have and we do! There’s narrow roads, but we always try our best to get through, even in storms or floods or on icy roads or in snowy conditions. A lot of customers do appreciate what we do”. – Dave, driver at St Austell depot.

The government’s recent Clean Growth Strategy and 25 Year Environment Plan highlighted the role of lower-carbon fuels in protecting your physical health and the environment. AvantiGas are proud to be bringing warmth and power to Cornwall in line with these policies, and to be partnered with Cornwall Wildlife Trust to support the fantastic work they do.

While they’re championing the use of LPG in Cornwall, there’s never been a better time to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible on your energy. The dedicated local team of consultants, engineers and drivers deliver the personal service and competitive pricing that makes AvantiGas the perfect choice for off-grid homes.

If you’re thinking of changing supplier, or converting to LPG from a different fuel, get in touch with AvantiGas’ friendly team for a no-cost, no-commitment chat about your options. You’ll be glad you did!

“The service is so good that I hardly ever see or hear the delivery and I have never had cause to ring up, as the service runs so smoothly.” - Mrs M E Farmery, Truro
