Hi Greg,

Great question. We run a hemp harvesting and drying business in Oregon and utilize propane dryers. Our natural gas’s company supply lines end 2 miles up the road from our farm. They said they could trench and extend the line to our facility, but we’d have to cover the cost of roughly $1.4m. They then proceeded to nonchalantly ask how we’d like to pay for it, check or card? Insane for just 2 miles! That left us with propane. It adds up quick; going through 6,000 gallons/week for 60 days. Any hemp drying business would choose NG instead of propane if given the option. Hope this helped answer your question!
