Given that states across the country are pursuing various building and transportation electrification initiatives, it’s important to understand grid electricity’s cost premium, and how it compares to propane. First, remember that we can’t directly compare the price of one kilowatt-hour (kWh) of retail electricity to one gallon of propane because they represent different amounts of energy. To account for this, we can convert both energy sources to British thermal units (Btu).
Details for doing comparisons provided by the National Propane Gas Association are found here.
