Rural Propane Services
Propane Clean, safe, & dependable.
Your Local Provider Owned by its members.
RPS Committed to serving its members.
Rural Propane Services, LLC (RPS) opened its doors in June 2014. This company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lincoln Electric Cooerative, Inc. RPS was created to provide another cost-effective fuel option for Lincoln Electric members.
Although RPS is a for-profit comapany, it is run differently than other propane providers. It is operated with a cooperative business model. That means propane costs are set to meet expenses; not to make a profit. As a result, members are able to save money while receiving exceptional service.
As a new company, RPS has many plans for the future to further improve the cost effectiveness of propane. One is to develope a larger storage capacity. This will allow RPS to buy and store propane during times of low demand and cost. It will then be possible to reduce purchases when wholesale costs are high.
The second is to create satellite facilities to better serve the large RPS territory. Satellite facilities will allow for fewer trips to outlying areas, which will save fuel, labor and vehicle expenses.
The third improvement is to expand the services and appliances to members. There is currently a limited selection of propane appliances available locally, causing members to have to travel for those services. RPS plans on saving members those trips and the associated expense.
Their expansion of services also includes options for Heating, Cooling, Ventilation & Air Quality Control. Their expert in this field, Brian Yarus, certified by NATE and IGSHPA, has over 30 years of experience. He and his well-qualified team will design and install systems specific to the needs of your home or shop.
RPS is also devoted to safety and efficiency. Members are eligible for free safety and leak checks annually. For a small fee, an employee can perform a check more often if a member has concerns. Our highly trained staff can also help members with propane appliance repairs and other issues.
Other programs to weave RPS into the fabric of its communities will come in time. RPS will continue to follow the tradition of its parent company, Lincoln Electric, to work with the community to improve the quality of life for its members.
Members have already noticed a difference in the member service of RPS versus most other propane providers. With a cooperative mindset, RPS is committed to serving the members of the community in the most efficient and helpful way possible.
Rural Propane Service takes pride in providing members with propane at reasonable rates, excellent heating and air cooling options and extraordinary member service.
