The Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association (PAPGA) is an alternative energy trade association representing members of the propane industry.
We exist to serve the propane industry by promoting safety, education, and public awareness of the uses and environmental and health benefits of propane. Our core activities include educating, informing, lobbying, and influencing a variety of stakeholders about the benefits of propane, expanding propane markets and uses, promoting compliance with standards and good business practices among our member companies, and facilitating knowledge transfer, thought leadership, and innovation through networking.
Our membership includes the nation’s largest propane companies and numerous small companies, who are often family owned and operated, many for several generations. Regular communication with our membership, ongoing educational offerings and advocacy at the state Capital for business-friendly legislation which continues to promote clean energy, and public and employee safety are some of our regular activities. We meet several times a year and are governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 28 (volunteer) members. We work diligently to provide value to our members. We often field questions and direct members and consumers to the appropriate sources if we are unable to help them ourselves. We are here to be your resource for everything propane.
