RP Gas provides APS with Propane Power

RP Gas and APS

Arizona’s leading electric company, Arizona Public Service (APS), is utilizing Propane for a stable backup power source.  RP Gas was called to provide the installation of high capacity propane systems at 7 APS substations throughout Arizona. These substations are the electrical hubs that transform and distribute power to homes and businesses across our communities.

The project included of the installation of high capacity propane systems. The systems included above ground, high capacity propane tanks and polyethylene (PE) piping that will safely control and distribute the high-pressure propane gas. The propane tanks and attached underground network of PE pipes will supply back up generators that will supply power when necessary. If there is a problem with the main power systems, the back up generators, powered  by the propane, will kick in. This will help ensure that an interruption in electricity is quickly fixed by the secondary power systems that RP Gas has provided.
